Project Fit America (PFA) is a national nonprofit organization that creates sustainable and innovative physical education programs in schools. PFA programming includes state-of-the-art outdoor fitness equipment that is specifically designed to address the deficit areas where children fail fitness tests; indoor mobile fitness equipment; a dynamic curriculum with games, activities and challenges for kids with the PFA outdoor and indoor equipment; on site teacher training and in class instruction on subjects such as smoking intervention, nutrition and understanding your body. Students are expected not to just become smarter as a result of going to school, but healthier too!
Locally, Indiana Regional Medical Center (IRMC) has joined forces with Project Fit America (PFA) to provide this programming in area schools. Eisenhower is the 8th local school to be so equipped, and the 3rd IASD school to receive the grant. This is a continued roll out of PFA’s Official Pennsylvania State Model and pilot program that began in 2006.
