Sponsor Kids Fitness

 

Potential Sponsor:

We would like to take a moment of your time to introduce the Kids Fitness Program – a summer program that SHINE Fitness sponsors each year here in Meridian, Idaho.

Without sounding biased- we literally cannot say enough about this program.  It is the highlight of our summer, and we know the kids would say the same.   

It isn’t your basic “run kids around a get them tired” type thing (although that does happen) but instead we focus on 5 areas:

Charity • Fitness • Nutrition/Healthy Habits • Fun • Choose to Shine!


Please take a few minutes to watch our video from the summer of 2016 Kids Fitness


We would like to explain how the charity part of Kids Fitness works and then follow up with some ideas of how you and/or your company can be a part of this inspiring program.

We have partnered with the non-profit “RODS Racing” which stands for Racing for Orphans with Down Syndrome. Each summer our kids run to help fund the account of an orphan that is waiting to be adopted.

The track they run around is a ½ mile long. Half way around stands a JR coach with a bucket of marbles, ready to hand one to each child as they pass by. The kids carry that marble all the way back to the starting line where their individual buckets are waiting for them to drop the marble into. Once they do that, they are encouraged to keep running until the whistle blows which signals it is time to come back in. (usually within 15-20 minutes)

Marbles alone are a pretty cool thing to earn, but these kids have a much larger intention for collecting as many as they can. They have been told that their running will help an orphan with Downs Syndrome get adopted and various donors have generously offered to pay $1 per marble – ALL of which will go into that orphan’s adoption fund. They understand that by running each week, they are literally helping another child find a mom and a dad and be a part of a family… a forever family. They take this responsibility seriously.

Watching these kids give their all, in hopes that they can help someone they don’t even know, is a beautiful thing.

What once started out as a small race with a single donor… fortunately has grown in popularity, and with that popularity, the amount of donation required has increased, thus becoming necessary for us to seek outside sponsorship. This is where your part in this story begins.
