Give the Gift of Movement and “Move for More” with Peloton
Do you remember what sparked the joy of movement for you? Maybe it was your first bike ride or dancing with a family member to a favorite tune.
Every child deserves to have that spark. Movement takes hundreds of forms, but they all have something in common: They make us healthier and happier.
It’s why we work every day to help create opportunities for the millions of kids who don’t have access to sports camps or ballet classes or even a safe park in which to play.
The positive impact physical activity has on kids and teens is untold. From improving coordination and strength to behavior and performance in the classroom, movement is a necessity for healthy lives. It can even have a profound effect on emotional health, like this 6th grader who manages his severe anxiety with mindful movement techniques.
So this holiday season, give the gift of movement to a child.
Here are just some of the ways you can support our mission:
- The Power of 10: A small gift of $10 will help Action for Healthy Kids provide a class of 25 kids with 10 extra minutes of physical activity every day for 10 days!
- If you’re a member of Peloton or just want to give it a try, you can “Move for More” between now and December 19, 2019. Our new partner Peloton will donate $5 to Action for Healthy Kids and the Active Schools movement when you take three 10- or 15-minute live or on-demand classes from their special Move for More collection.
- Start your New Year’s resolutions early by signing up to run a marathon with Team Healthy Kids in 2020 or plan your own holiday fundraiser—get folks to pledge donations for your polar bear plunge or your New Year’s Eve or Day race!
Improving kids’ health and well-being is critical for creating a brighter future for all. So if movement has improved your life, please make a donation today.
