StarFit Kids, a local non-profit, was founded in 2009 as a response to the alarming rise in childhood obesity. Lelia Davis, RN, President, and Sabra Zirkle, RD, Vice President, have created an interactive nutrition and fitness program for children in the community. The mission of StarFit Kids is to promote lifelong healthy eating habits and everyday fitness.
By offering accurate and current nutrition and fitness education, the StarFit Kids program exposes children to examples of how to make healthy choices and live a healthy lifestyle. Through mastery of these nutrition education skills, the students increase their knowledge of important nutrition principals to improve their overall health and nutrition status, as well as their self-esteem and fitness level.

Alliance for Climate Education (ACE) is a national nonprofit dedicated to educating America’s high school students about the science behind climate change and inspiring them to do something about it, while having fun along the way. They deliver free assemblies on climate change at high schools across the country. Their assembly presentation has won rave reviews from teachers, students, and administrators nationwide. ACE has presented to more than 400,000 students in the past year. After the assembly, they help students kick-start climate projects at school—anything from launching a recycling club to solarizing their school district. ACE has activated more than 14,000 students to take on climate projects and awarded more than $130,000 in grants and scholarships to high schools and students to make a deep and lasting impact in their community.
