GOLO and Project Fit America team up once again to support physical education in schools
Project Fit America (PFA), a national non-profit that creates and administers exemplary fitness in education programming for elementary and middle schools, is launching the second year of its philanthropic relationship and grant program with GOLO. This year’s grant, a total of $10,000, will again fund the development of a Project Fit America program in GOLO's corporate home state of Delaware.
Last year, the grant funded by GOLO was awarded to John R. Downes Elementary School in Newark, Delaware. The school received fitness equipment and a dynamic supplemental physical education curriculum with games, activities, and challenges for children. Project Fit America will also provide on-site training support with the school’s physical education teacher representative for the next two years.

"We're excited to expand our partnership with the team from Project Fit America by bringing this amazing opportunity to another deserving school in Delaware," said Jennifer Brooks, President and Co-founder of GOLO. "We've seen first-hand how Project Fit America's work in local communities truly makes a difference, providing funding, equipment, and other resources that schools need. We can't wait for year two!”
"We are honored to have the continued partnership with GOLO for this second year of grant giving and support for fitness in education," said Stacey Cook, Director of Project Fit America. "We will be able to impact hundreds and hundreds of students. They love the lessons, games, challenges, and activities, and so do the PE teachers. It is a win-win for all, as the need to help children become active, fit, and healthy will never diminish."
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 supplies for lesson plan support. Project Fit America programs are also customized to each school individually and can be adapted to existing PE programs and curricula.
