Mission Statement

Mission

Fitness Forward is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission it is to lead youth to live well . Integrating scientifically grounded evidence, innovative technologies, and targeted social marketing, we aim to reverse the dangerous rise in chronic disease, obesity and mental illness among youth.


Description

Fitness Forward: Be Active, Eat Smart, Sleep Well, Stress Less, Be AwareFitness Forward is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization facilitating healthy lifestyles among youth, in an effort to decrease chronic disease and obesity, and enhance mental well-being, academic performance and life success. In our main program, "Drive 2 Fitness", mentors, staff and tools help children, parents, teachers and elementary schools earn points for key daily healthy behaviors such as 1+ hours of physical activity, 1 hour or less TV/ video game time, 5+ fruits and vegetables, no sugar-added drinks and adequate sleep. The organization's Children's Playbook will then holistically integrate and implement best-in-class environmental, policy and program practices needed to support communities in their Drive 2 Fitness, and usher in new funding for schools through the Fitness Forward League.
