The AdvoCare Foundation, which focuses on ending childhood obesity and encouraging kids to lead healthy lives, recently hosted #GenerationFit, a workout event featuring four-time CrossFit® Games champion, Rich Froning, at The Star in Frisco, Texas.
AdvoCare founding family members and Distributors were among the participants gathered for the special workout intended to help ensure the next generation is the fittest generation.
“We are so proud that nearly 2,000 AdvoCare Distributors, CrossFit fanatics and supporters joined us at The Star to break a sweat for #GenerationFit and raise money for the AdvoCare Foundation,” said Whitney Strauss, executive director of the AdvoCare Foundation. “We are fighting to end the epidemic of childhood obesity, and we’re excited that the $175,000 raised will help children in need live healthier.”
The funds raised will go towards the Foundation’s beneficiary organizations whose work directly impacts the safety and health of children in need, including two in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, REAL School Gardens (Fort Worth) and Y.M.C.A Dallas.
“REAL School Gardens was an early recipient of funding from the newly formed AdvoCare Foundation, and we’re honored to continue our partnership,” said Mary Freeman, Texas regional executive director at REAL School Gardens. “The Foundation’s mission aligns perfectly with ours—to partner with schools to help students excel academically and develop healthy habits.”
Kristin Kelley, director of development at YMCA Dallas, added, “The YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas is proud to be in partnership with AdvoCare Foundation in their mission to diminish childhood obesity. Through our programs that focus on healthy living, together we are helping children and their families take steps toward long-term health. We’re thankful for the thoughtful work the Foundation does in our community.”
