Every child can enjoy the benefits of being stronger and happier, through better health….

The Stronger, Happier Kids initiative was launched in early 2016 when a team of health professionals, parents, school officials and community leaders came together with common beliefs…and aligned goals….to prepare our children for a long, happy and healthy life.  With a focus on age-appropriate practical education and consistent healthy action, we work in the classroom, on the fields, and in the community alongside parents, teachers, administrators and coaches, and leverage Pro-Activity’s  evidence-based ELEMENTS health promotion curriculum, teaching our children about MOVE-ing enough and with quality, FUELing appropriately, RECOVERing fully, ENDURing set-back, and CONNECTing with one another in both challenge and achievement!

We look forward to connecting with you and supporting your efforts in preparing the next generation to thrive!
