PLAY.FIT.FUN Loves our KIND KIDS! Once per month, kids from each school program get chosen as The PFF KIND KID for that month. They are voted in by their classmates, who think they were the kindest kid that month. Sportsmanship, Respect, Following The Rules & Helping Others are just some of the criteria! So far, all of the current and past choices have been spot on! KIND KIDS ROCK!
January 29th, Play.Fit.Fun had the pleasure of producing another team building event with both the Westview High School and Westview Youth Basketball Players. These fantastic 5th-12th grade champions worked hard, had fun and left it on the floor! Play.Fit.Fun does not charge public high school teams for these special events. If you coach a local high school program, or have kids involved at that level, contact us about scheduling a team building event!

We would drink a couple of two liters of soda a day. We were very out of shape,“ recalls Collings of Port St. Lucie, Florida. “We saw ourselves in bathing suits, in the Caribbean, and it dawned on us – 'Oh my God, what have we done?'”

The $$ was from our recycling fundraiser held in late August.
The $$ PFF will keep goes into our scholarship fund to help families enroll in our Kids Action Classes if they are having a tough go of it.
We will do this annually now...and it has actually led to a new idea to both keep feeding our scholarship fund and helping local high school teams.
Any time someone has computers, printers, metals, appliances, etc...PFF will pick it up, and take it out to EG Metals. 70% of the $ derived from the product donation will go to our scholarship...and 30% will go to a local high school team or athletic department.
The $$ will help them pay for buses...uniforms...balls...etc...
