Improving the health and wellness of children.

According to the PA department of Health, 30% of school children in Allegheny County are overweight or obese, which could affect their school performance. This issue is particularly concerning in under-served communities, where education about and access to healthy choices  are a  challenge.

fitUnited was launched to improve the health of our children by mobilizing and motivating our community. Our two key objectives are to increase physical activity levels and improve nutrition in kids from birth to age 12, and we need caring adults to help us do that.

We’re providing adults with the tools and knowledge to teach kids how to choose and access healthy foods, increase their physical activity, and encourage healthy eating for youth-serving organizations. Last year, fitUnited provided learning opportunities and resources on the importance of healthy foods and physical activity to 300+ partners who serve over 50,000 kids.

You can help by volunteering or provide funding to provide tools, training, and support to a network of over 300 organizations working to improve childhood nutrition and physical activity.
