A benefactor generously awarded the DFF with a $100,000 grant!  This transformational grant will help the DFF to create the systems and processes to operate on a much larger scale. Additionally, these new processes will help us towards our goal of becoming a nationwide organization. Below are some of the ways our organization will be impacted:
  • Creating sustainability in the organization
  • Developing fundraising chapters
  • Building closer relationships between affiliate gyms, the foundation and the partner organizations
  • Expanding our marketing and resource materials
  • Growing and expanding the program by incorporating additional affiliate gyms and enrolling more schools
We greatly appreciate this incredible opportunity and are looking forward to continuing to help change children's lives!

"We appreciate Discover Fitness Foundation more than words can say. Before our son DaQuan started gymnastics, he was very timid and uncoordinated. After getting use to gymnastics, DaQuan is now coordinated and he has confidence in himself. It is great socially also, because he loves attending every week and he now participates, where he did not before. DaQuan's motor skills are now better. This program is great, we have seen so many improvements within our son. It gives him a special place to go once a week with his friends. It makes him excited, as well as us excited too." - DaQuan's Mother
