The Rite Aid Foundation has generously gifted Fit Kids with a $10,000 grant as part of its annual Giving Tuesday grant award funded through Rite Aid’s KidCents customer round-up program.
“We are thrilled to receive this gift,” said Fit Kids Founder Ashley Hunter. “The funds will go a long way toward bringing our structured fitness program to many more children who need it. Rite Aid is doing right by the kids we reach with fitness resources they would otherwise lack.”
Fit Kids is one of nearly 500 partner charities across the country receiving a grant from The Rite Aid Foundation, which donated a total of $4.8 million on Giving Tuesday this year. “Fit Kids shares The Rite Aid Foundation’s caring commitment to creating healthier and more equitable neighborhoods,” said Matthew DeCamara, executive director of The Rite Aid Foundation, a public charity established by Rite Aid in 2001.
“All of our Giving Tuesday grant recipients address the profound realities of racial inequities and health disparities through their own ways and strategies – and have done it during an unprecedented public-health crisis that has significantly interrupted normal programming, fundraising events and daily operations. We’re grateful to support their important work and uplift our neighborhoods together.”
