We are the Tampa Bay Heat, a homeschool group representing many areas in Tampa. Our group was originally formed to organize reconized sports so homeschool kids might too be able to get athletic scholarships to college. As both kids and parents, we have seen the problem with childhood obeisty. In the state of Florida alone it was reported last year that one of every three kids was considered obese. It is our desire to help kids be healthy and active through exercise and sports programs. That is how Keeping Kids Fit began. We hold fundraisers that involve exercise to sponsor children so they too can be on sports teams, participate in races, go to camp, and also pay for sporting equipment. We financially support families who cannot afford to have their children involved in athletic programs. We truly believe a healthy child is a happy child.
Our current fundraising project is a 5K race being held at Alderman’s Ford Park. The race is going to be March. 24, 2012. We expect to have at least 75 racers. We are trying to find sponsors for our event. We are looking for gifts to give away and also money to help pay for expenses.
We would love to put your buisness logo on every t-shirt printed, our web site, and our registration table. Thanks for your consideration in sponsoring us in this event. It truly will be a blessing to many children who need an oppurtunity to be heatlhy through exercise.
