Here in Maine, we  believe in fostering both the mental  and  physical health of a child. Simply put, a healthy child has fewer absences, learns better, and is less likely to develop weight-related diseases later in life.

Schools play a vital role in the wellness of children. Students spend almost as many waking hours at school as they do at home, and consume up to two thirds of their daily calories here. This means we have an important opportunity – and responsibility – to teach and reinforce healthy habits.

Please consider donating to strengthen school wellness programs in our state, and share with your family and friends to amplify our reach!

 

How it works:

  • 80 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to the school campus, to be spent on wellness at the school's discretion.
  • 20 cents goes to support school wellness in underserved communities through MAHPERD--the professional association for health & PE teachers in our state--and CATCH Global Foundation, a 501c3 dedicated to bringing wellness to underserved communities nationwide.
