Procter & Gamble has provided USA Gymnastics with a $75,000 grant to support youth sports development, which has the potential to benefit up to one million kids. The grant will be used to benefit the USA Gymnastics Fitness Program, which encourages kids ages 6-16 years old to engage in physical fitness through training, exercise and nutrition awareness. This is the first of several grants that will be awarded to national governing bodies (NGBs) to help encourage youth to engage in sports.
Kids who participate in the USA Gymnastics Fitness Program will benefit from the program’s year-round goal of helping youth achieve a physically active lifestyle. Through lessons, training exercises and charts to track participants’ progress at home, this program found on the USA Gymnastics website at www.usagym.org/fitness will assist children in providing a solid foundation for becoming physically fit and healthy.
