Throughout the 2014-2015 school year, we invited our schools to help change the world through our giveback initiative, KidFit Salute. Here’s how it worked. When a Boosterthon student reached $5 per lap during our program, they received our KidFit Water bottle and we made a donation to our giveback partner, Our Military Kids, an organization supporting military families.
When a military family has a parent who is deployed or injured, it can be a challenging time for that family, especially for the children. Through sports and community activities, these children can gain support and stay active, regardless of their current circumstances.
And that’s why we love Our Military Kids! They come alongside these special families by providing grants toward sports or fitness-centered activities, and we wanted to rally behind them! We set the bar high and are proud to announce that with the help of our schools, Boosterthon donated a total of $23,974 for kid-fitness grants!
We heard incredible stories throughout the year of military men and women being honored at our Fun Runs, kids in military families holding the American flag during the National Anthem, and learning that PTA members had previously benefited from Our Military Kids while their spouse was deployed.
We couldn’t have done it without the support of our awesome Boosterthon schools. Thank you for helping a great cause. Together we can change the world!
There are many great stories of how Our Military Kids has made a positive impact on families lives. Meet two Boosterthon families who benefitted from this great organization.
