There are many ways for you to help:
- Make a donation. For $10, you can get 1 kid active. $100 gets 10 kids moving
- Visit your local school and ask them to increase the amount of physical activity in their school by implementing a PHIT America AMPED program. We have free programs to offer to schools throughout the year
- Organize a local fundraiser. We have a 'Go Fund Me' approaches for you to use. Learn more on this page.
- Let national and local leaders know that physical activity has to be a priority in schools. Sign the PetitionForHealthyKids.org.
- Start a state or local 'PHIT Chapter' to help kids in your area. Have more questions? Contact xxxx.PHITAmerica.org.
PHIT America is the ideal 'social responsibility' partner for companies and foundations. We improve children's physical and mental health in local communities.
- Sponsor a group of schools in your area. 50 million children in the USA are not active to CDC physical activity standards. We need your help. PHIT America can get a school moving and more active for only $4,000. We have 8 levels of sponsorship.
- Engage your employees. They can 'adopt local schools' while also implementing AMPED and AMPED+ programs. This is a great PR opportunity.
- PHIT America's biggest supporter is a family foundation. Foundations see the huge benefit of supporting PHIT America. Our cost of impact per child is second to none.
- You can also help by talking to local education and government leaders to increase physical activity requirements in their schools. Beside local engagement, motivate your contacts to sign the PetitionForHealthyKids.org.

We need your help. The education system has totally undervalued the importances of physical activity for improved learning. There is great research HERE for you to use.
- The first thing is to push for greater time for physical activity and physical education in schools. Join other educators to make sure there are laws with real teeth that make sure EVERY kid is physically active at least 30 minutes at least 3 days a week. No EXCEPTIONS.
- Our programs can be implemented before the school day...during the day...or after-school
- Once you have 'local by in', PHIT America has the ideal programs and we are very efficient. We have worked on our programs for over 8 years and cost and impact per child are second to none.
While charities, individuals, companies & foundations like PHIT America can help, government leaders must step up.
- Invest in the PHIT America National 'Private & Public Plan' which can help 50 million kids get more active and healthy. And, it costs less than $500 million to make this happen.
- This plan can be implemented in individual states.
- One of the key components is to pass legislation making physical activity a major priority every week for every kid...NO EXCEPTIONS or WAIVERS.
PHIT America is confident that we can secure efficient programs for schools to implement efficient programs. If you truly want to fight the 'Inactivity Pandemic' and improve the physical and mental health of kids, please contact PHIT America Founder, Jim Baugh, at Jim@PHITAmerica.org.
