House Passes FIT Kids Act! Send a Thank You Note to Your Representative

All the action we asked you and other You’re the Cure advocates to take this week has paid off! The U.S. House just passed the FIT Kids Act, which brings us another step closer to helping improve the health of our nation’s kids. This bill would establish a framework for schools to closely look at the quality and quantity of PE they are providing, and to supply parents with that information to better understand the PE their kids are receiving.

Before we start pushing for the bill in the Senate, let’s take a minute to thank the Representatives who voted in favor of the legislation. You can find out more information and send a message to your Representative through our web site.

And, of course, we’d like to thank you once again for your activism. Your involvement in advocating for this legislation will go a long way to ensure our kids are getting quality physical education in their schools, which will help them grow into healthier and smarter adults.

Keep an eye out for future updates on this issue, but please take a minute to thank your Representative today.
