GOLO and Project Fit America Team Up to Support Healthy Lifestyles and Physical Education

GOLO recently made a $10,000 donation to Project Fit America (PFA), a national non-profit that creates and administers exemplary fitness in education programming for elementary and middle schools.

The donation will fund the development of a Project Fit America school grant program in our corporate home state of Delaware and is an extension of our ongoing commitment to supporting community-based health and wellness initiatives.

"We're excited about this unique collaboration with the team from Project Fit America," said Jennifer Brooks, President and Co-founder of GOLO. "Their work in local communities to bring in funding, equipment, and other resources schools need is respected around the country."

Project Fit America programs are designed to help increase children's fitness levels through fun and innovative activities by providing much-needed physical education equipment, on-site teacher training, curriculum materials, and lesson plan support supplies. Project Fit America programs are also customized to each school individually and adapt to existing PE programs and curricula.

"We are extremely proud of our partnership with GOLO and their dedication to supporting health and wellness initiatives in their home state of Delaware,” said Stacey Cook, Executive Director, Project Fit America. "Their generous donation will help Physical Education Teachers at a local school create and infuse fitness activities into their PE programs.

Through this, we can assure that every child, regardless of skill or ability, will find something they are very good at, which inspires them to try to do even more. Every child deserves to grow up active, fit, and healthy, and because of companies like GOLO, we have been able to help over a half million kids and counting."
