 IMPROVING THE PHYSICAL & MENTAL HEALTH OF
25,000 KIDS IN PALM BEACH COUNTY BY 2025 

Palm Beach County Resident & PHIT America Founder Jim Baugh

"PHIT America is helping children all over America but I want to make sure we help the kids in my backyard. IMPACT 100 Palm Beach County and the Community Foundation of Palm Beach and Martin Counties have stepped up in a huge way. I also want to thank Eric Stern at the Palm Beach County School District and others for their support.
Contact me to lend your support to improve the physical and mental health of at least 25,000 students by 2025."

 THE PROBLEM 
USA KIDS ARE IN BAD SHAPE

  • US kids are ranked LAST in physical health among 38 developed countries - UNICEF

  • US kids are ranked 47th out of 50 countries in fitness - BRITISH JOURNAL OF SPORTS MEDICINE

  • During the COVID pandemic, kids 5-11 years old were more inactive & gained 5 pounds on average

  • Mental health issues have become more common during COVID as well

  • Nearly 50% of all USA schools have eliminated physical education or reduced it dramatically

  • Schools are looking for more programing to get kids more active, fit and healthy

THE SITUATION IN PALM BEACH COUNTY 
261 ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS - MANY IN NEED OF HELP

  • There are 150 public elementary schools as well at 111 private elementary schools in Palm Beach County; Many are Title 1 schools which traditionally are underserved and have great needs

  • PHIT America focuses on public Title 1 schools but will help any school with our school programs.

  • While we have a great start to improve the physical and mental health of Palm Beach County children with the support we have, many other schools and kids are looking for help. 

 OUR SOLUTION 
FUN SCHOOL-BASED FITNESS PROGRAMS

  • 25,000 students in 50 PALM BEACH COUNTY Schools need PHIT America programs to improve kids' physical and mental health. Schools are applying now for PHIT America support.

  • PHIT America will work with the Palm Beach County School District to implement the AMPED Running Walking Fitness Program, the PLAY TENNIS, PLAY GOLF, and PLAY PICKLEBALL Programs  ​

  • Your donation will improve the physical & mental health of these kids.
