Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Get people moving with their friends and family. Motivate Americans to take personal responsibility for good physical, mental and emotional health. We encourage them to make quality nutritional choices which include nutrient rich foods, rather than processed foods.

The Move Your Feet Before You Eat Foundation is primary the beneficiary of the O'side Turkey Trot which has attracted 8,500 - 9,500 participants annually in a community which historically been challenged by low fitness and academic scores in the schools. We work with the school and Boys and Girls Clubs to encourage them to offer physical activity daily and to utilize tracking programs to reinforce these healthy habits.

We have a community outreach team that goes out to the schools and Boys and Girls Club to introduce them to the program which includes a fully funded link to a cloud software program. In 2018, we had 7 schools join the Miles of Smiles program and close to 4,000 students are now participating. The program makes it very easy to print out reports and mileage club certificates to encourage the students and decrease the labor of tracking each student’s progress. We are very excited about the future.

3,400 students are currently participating in 2018
