Help us make Play Possible for ALL 

Nearly 5 million children have quit sports in the past decade.

In 2018, only 38% of kids ages 6 to 12 played team or individual sports on a regular basis. This is down from 45% in 2008. That's nearly 5 million children who have quit sports within the past 10 years.  According to the National Survey of Children's Health, only 24% of youth ages 6 to 17 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity per day. A recent New York Times article cited a study that showed that children 6 to 18 are playing 50% less than before the health crisis. It also showed that 30% of youth who were playing sports before the pandemic were not likely to go back without a major intervention.

With childhood obesity becoming an epidemic in the United States, it should come as no surprise that many Kids are becoming more unhealthy. 1 in 5 school age children in America is obese. This will cause long term health implications that will adversely impact the next generation.

It's more important than ever that we unlock the power of play for all Kids, everywhere.

Together we can combat this and create a new reality.

This campaign is about more than money- it's about changing the trajectory of health for youth in America. Our goal is to raise $70,000 by December 31st- it won't be easy- but with you, it will be possible.

Give the gift of play this holiday season, by supporting our campaign TODAY!

With gratitude,

The Volo Kids Foundation
