When a military parent is deployed, it can be a very challenging and scary time for the child. That’s why Boosterthon is partnering with the non-profit Our Military Kids to provide financial support for military kids hoping to play a sport. Sports help keep these students plugged into their communities while a parent is away or injured.
When a Boosterthon student reaches the $5 per lap reward level, they’ll receive the KidFit Water Bottle and we’ll make a small donation to provide a kid fitness grant through Our Military Kids. With your help, we’ll reach our goal of $25,000 toward kid fitness grants.
“Our Military Kids works every day to help children stay active and happy while they have a parent deployed overseas or recovering from severe injuries sustained in service to our country,” said Linda Davidson, executive director of Our Military Kids. “Partnering with Boosterthon’s KidFit Salute initiative will help more kids play sports during what can be an incredibly difficult time. It’s important for kids to be kids, regardless of their circumstances, and we’re honored that Boosterthon will help us make that happen.”
