FLEET FEET SPORTS SACRAMENTO - PROJECT FIT
A NON-PROFIT YOUTH FITNESS INITATIVE

Fleet Feet Sports Sacramento has supported several local elementary schools with free after-school running programs for years. In 2010, Fleet Feet Sacramento launched Project Fit - a free after school running platform that encourages youth fitness for any interested Sacramento elementary school. They provide training workouts, coaching to parent volunteers who lead the program, and t-shirts for each student. Additional support is dedicated to Title I, 100% low income schools, who need coaching assistance. As of spring 2015, there are more than 15 schools using the Project Fit program with more than 1,500 children participating.

Students in Project Fit are encouraged to participate in local kid's fun runs at area races. Through Project Fit funds, 100 race entry fees for Title I students wanting to run in the Sacramento Zoo Zoom have been covered each year since 2011.
