When & Where
Wender Weis Foundation for Children and Fit Kids
Wender Weis Foundation for Children's mission is to improve children’s self-esteem and self-confidence. We strive to do this by funding existing programs, and creating new programs, that provide children living in underserved communities with the gift of encouragement and self-confidence. When children believe in themselves and have others believe in them, they are able to develop the emotional, social, and physical skills that allow them to lead healthy, motivated, and inspired lives.
Fit Kids' mission is to promote a healthy active lifestyle among children in underserved communities through high quality youth fitness programs and nutrition tips. By offering increased opportunities for physical activity among children, Fit Kids hopes to inspire an early love of sports and fitness that will serve as the foundation for a healthy way of life. Furthermore, through its science-based curriculum and dedicated coaches, Fit Kids provides the framework to help children build positive relationships, self-confidence, independence and the ability to deal with adversity.
