How do we know its fall and the school year has begun?
There is a nip in the air, leaves falling from the trees, football consuming our Sundays, and of course kids and teens knocking on our doors selling a variety of products for school fundraisers.
Unfortunately, many of these products contribute to the obesity epidemic in theU.S.
Don’t get me wrong. We all love cookies, pizza, cheesecake and lots of other fun goodies. They are however, readily available in local supermarkets like Hornbachers in reasonable portions at reasonable prices. (And don’t get me started on $25.00 candles?!)
We all agree that fundraisers are a necessity for every school.
I constantly have parents, sister-in-laws, teachers, PTA members, principals , and students telling me how frustrated they are about the lack of healthy options for fundraisers.
These same people tell me there is also a necessity for programs that teach students the tools to counteract issues like, obesity, bullying, drug/ alcohol abuse, and internet and video game abuse.
I have many schools inquiring about my mind/body/fitness/team building/motivation program: POSITIVE MOTION “Movement with a Message”
My goal is to never charge any student to participate in Positive Motion.
That is why I offer the POSITIVE MOTION Fit+Fund+Rai$e program.
POSITIVE MOTION Fit+Fund+Rai$e is an innovative way to raise funds for schools, non profits, and community organizations that gives the contributor the opportunity to invest into the health and fitness of the student, the organization, and their community.
POSITIVE MOTION Fit+Fund+Rai$e supercharges energy into the fund raising process and the outcome by providing materials and support for the organization to reach their fund raising goal.
POSITIVE MOTION Fit+Fund+Rai$e has already been a success in schools and I am hoping to keep the momentum going so we can reach all our students in a healthy way.
Let’s make those knocks at the door turn into healthy fun-ds!
