SportsEngine Announces Partnership with PHIT America
SportsEngine is excited to announce a new partnership with PHIT America in support of their dedication to improve the health of Americans by increasing physical activity and participation in fitness programs and athletics. As part of this partnership, the company will promote and endorse the mission of PHIT America to dramatically improve the health of Americans, especially children, by implementing pro-activity programs.
“SportsEngine is committed to growing youth sports participation to help get kids active and stay active. PHIT America is a perfect partner for us as we help youth and amateur sport organizations grow their programs and expand their reach to more kids everyday,” said Justin Kaufenberg, co-founder and CEO of SportsEngine.
“We are thrilled to be able to work with SportsEngine to help educate people on the benefits of an active lifestyle,” added Jim Baugh, CEO and Founder of PHIT America. Today, 80% of children are at risk of disease due to physical inactivity and two-thirds are not active to healthy standards. More and more children are ‘couch potatoes’ as their level of physical activity is limited to moving their fingers while using electronic devices. They are not moving their bodies.
“As a major Sponsor of PHIT America, we look forward to providing our customers with a path to make donations to support this incredibly worthy cause.” added Kaufenberg.
SportsEngine supports the passage of the PHIT Act, legislation pending in Congress that will allow Americans to use pre-tax medical accounts to pay for physical activity expenses. The goal of the PHIT Act is to encourage healthier lifestyles by removing the cost barriers for ‘preventative medicine’ like physical activity, which will ultimately reduce healthcare costs related to obesity and sedentary lifestyles. Truly playing smarter to live more.
