Also part of its childhood obesity initiative, AFYF supported the Blank Family Foundation's September 23 Speaker Series program examining the link between physical fitness, student outcomes and brain development.
Preference will be given to projects serving low-income children in Atlanta and Gainesville, where AFYF supports Falcons Fitness Zone programming to reduce childhood obesity, as well as to projects in 12 identified high-need counties: Baker, Clay, Crisp, Early, Emanuel, Jenkins, Johnson, Stewart, Taliaferro, Terrell, Tift and Turner.
The 11 new grants deepen AFYF's investment across Georgia and in the five neighborhoods (four in Atlanta, one in Gainesville) designated as Falcons Fitness Zones, where AFYF partners are serving 10,000 kids at 50 sites during the school year - burning off more than 44,000 pounds of body fat, or more than 515,000 cheeseburgers.
