Charting impact

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

Keep children and athletes healthy and safe!
Teaching youth a healthy habit that will last a lifetime!
Improve hydration for people of all ages.

- Educational programs for K-12 through elementary schools, middle schools and athletic programs.
- Supplemental community outreach programs through health fairs, lunch and learns at offices, and safety meetings for industrial workers.
- Beat the Heat program for athletes
- Senior adult hydration education
- Industrial hydration/heat illness education program

The staff and volunteers conduct the educational outreach activities listed in the impact segment.

To date we have educated over 400,000 children and athletes on a healthy habit for a lifetime! Our goal is to continue to reach more individuals and provide the education in easy to replicate on-line sessions.
