Thanks to Get Kidz Fit Sponsors for Creating Healthy Fun

The fourth annual Get Kidz Fit event at Market Hall on April 30 scored a unanimous hit with 3,500 kids, families and volunteers. All enjoyed healthy fitness activities, food demos and entertainment.  

Hearty thanks to the generous Get Kidz Fit sponsors that made it possible:

  • Silver:  AMERIGROUP Community Care, The Cooper Institute, Children’s Medical Center, TXU Energy, Community Council of Greater Dallas
  • Bronze:  Illes Seasonings & Flavors, Diabetes Health and Wellness Institute
  • Olympian:  Blue Cross-and Blue Shield of Texas, Southwest Dairy Farmers
  • Athlete:  Ventanilla de Salud, Frost Bank, TDIndustries, UniCare Health Plans of Texas, Inc., YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas, National Council of Jewish Women, Dallas Chapter
  • Cheerleader:  Jack & Jill of America, Inc., Dallas Chapter, REI, UTD Center for Children and Families
  • Media Sponsors:  DART, Metroplex Baby & Kids


One volunteer said, “I loved Get Kidz Fit.  Is there some way I can be involved in kids and fitness activities year-round?” That’s the “take-away” for participants and volunteers alike. Take the healthy eating and physical activity experiences from Get Kidz Fit and make them a part of your daily life.  For information, contact, Dallas Area Coalition to Prevent Childhood Obesity, a project of the Community Council.
