Youth Recreation & Activities Needs Your Support!
($20 from 1000 supporters)
The National Intramural Activities Association
(NIAA) would like your help in implementing several programs in the area to supplement the reduced involvement of park & rec options in the area. Students between the ages of 5 thru 14 and, in some cases, high school youths as well.
The United States leads the world in childhood obesity.
Various studies indicate that juvenile crimes are reduced when youths have recreational activities to participate in. We are one of the very few groups that work inside schools, as well as the general public, to bring not just sports but other activities that promote positive social engagement.
NIAA has recently found space in a building and needs to upgrade heating and lighting. We would like to host our first annual Intramural Literature League
for kids in grades 3 through 8; an elementary track & field program
and a kickball program
for K-8. While the first program focuses on intellect and critical thinking the other two will focus on heart health and cardio development.
As a supporter, your funds will go towards program development and building upgrades. Students will be able to participate in activities that cater to anybody type.
