PHIT America Challenges Team Sports Business
According to the UNICEF 2020 Report Card, America’s youth are ranked dead last in physical health. PHIT America, the national charity for kids’ health, is challenging the sports world, in particular its 200 million sports participants and fans, to step up to get kids more active and healthier.
PHIT America, whose mission is to improve the physical and mental health of 50 million children, has launched a national campaign, Which America Do You Want?, showing both “Today’s America” compared to a “PHIT America.” Sports and fitness fans among tennis, basketball, soccer, running and six other activities are being targeted.
“Most Americans, especially serious participants are not aware that our kids are in bad shape,” points out Jim Baugh, founder of PHIT America.
“Americans and corporations can directly change this by making a donation to PHIT America at PHITKids.org,” says Baugh. “We get kids more physically active and on the road to a much healthier lifestyle for less than $10 per child. We also introduce the kids to sports and after school programs. Physical inactivity and kids health is the number one issue our nation is facing and we are fiercely advocating for greater awareness, support and action.”
PHIT is asking all Americans to sign The Petition For Healthy Kids. This petition states, Every Child Must Have At Least 30 Minutes of Physical Activity 3 Days A Week In School Every Week. All data and research sources can be found on IP.PHITAmerica.org.
