The Fit-for-Me Foundation sees physical fitness & wellness as the next frontier of how to invest in young people to help them reach higher educational and personal fitness goals.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) June 08, 2011
Don Miguel: Dallas’s most trusted fitness coach and author of Stop the Stuttering, a health and fitness/weight loss book, launches Fit-for-Me Foundation’s LiveACTIVE Campaign, whose purpose is to appoint representatives from the physical fitness & wellness community to serve the fitness and wellness needs of Dallas’s youth.
The foundation’s mission is to advocate and advance physical fitness & wellness programs and services directed to better the lives of young people in America (K- through college). Together with major philanthropic institutions and corporations, the foundation seeks to bring physical fitness & wellness resources and programs to the young people of the Greater Dallas community.
Fit-for-Me Foundation’s vision involves appointing representatives from the fitness & wellness community, such as coaches, aerobics instructors, personal trainers and managers, massage therapists, sports figures, and celebrities, who volunteer their time and experience by speaking with students concerning overall health, fitness & wellness career possibilities, and motivation to pursue and maintain a healthy lifestyle and positive habits. “I believe that it is our responsibility to step up to the plate and use our most valuable resources - people who can and will make a difference on an ongoing basis and who also see this as a fantastic opportunity to simply give back,” remarks Don-Miguel, President & CEO.
"The Fit-for-Me Foundation sees physical fitness & wellness as the next frontier of how to invest in young people to help them reach higher educational and personal fitness goals. Considering that young people are becoming more obese, I believe that a community approach, focused on involvement in activities, is the key to developing the health and well-being of a physically-fit individual. So I am appealing to a wide range of partners and sponsors for support in furthering the foundation’s programs and services," notes Don-Miguel.
Fit-for-Me Foundation’s goals are to: (1) recognize the value of young people and education in our communities; (2) provide a comprehensive formula to lead better and healthier lives, including direction and incentives to work out, via speaking engagements by current fitness & wellness experts, sports figures and celebrities; (3) create awareness of career opportunities available in the fitness & wellness industry; (4) provide real-life experience in varying professional paths in the fitness & wellness industry through internships and other programs; and (5) develop concrete plans for the pursuit of further education or a career in the fitness & wellness field. As the number of young people served by the programs increases, the foundation hopes to encourage and direct more public financing for fitness & wellness programs.
Fit-for-Me Foundation welcomes partners and sponsors who are committed to investing substantial funds to fitness & wellness initiatives, in accordance with the foundation’s mission, purpose, and goals, over the next 7 years. The foundation expects to raise approximately $2.7 million during this time.
