Sincere thanks to our Kids in Motion Program grant donors!
The KIDS IN MOTION program provided funding to elementary schools for physical education and nutrition initiatives. The primary sources of funding for the KIM program were sponsorship of the Run for Education, donations, and restricted grants. From 2008 to 2019, the Run for Education was hosted by the Education Alliance Board in collaboration with the Washoe County School District and educators, volunteers, business representatives, community and government leaders. This event raised funding for our Kids in Motion program with proceeds impacting students and schools through the Education Alliance and focusing on physical and academic fitness in Washoe County. Funding for student health and wellness is still a top need per our WCSD school principals and our Caring for Classrooms initiative addresses this need across 100+ schools.
