July 2018: The Education Alliance is pleased to announce it has received a $2,500 grant from the NV Energy Foundation. These funds will support the Kids in Motion (KIM) program.

The KIM program was created by the Education Alliance Board twelve years ago in response to the elimination of funding for physical education (PE), sports and wellness activities within elementary schools in the Washoe County School District. It provides much needed physical education equipment/sports gear as well as educational resources to promote health and wellness among our students. NV Energy Foundation’s support will impact elementary students and promote physical education and healthy nutrition for students who might not otherwise have access to PE as part of their curriculum or have access to sports and nutrition programs.

“We are honored NV Energy Foundation is supporting the KIM program,” said Kendall Inskip, Education Alliance Executive Director. “Thanks to their commitment to student wellness, more than 34,000 elementary school students will have access to PE and wellness activities.”
