WHO: The mission of Louie’s Kids is to provide bi-weekly workouts, combined with nutrition education, throughout the tri-county area to families who could not otherwise afford a gym, recreation or athletic membership. In addition to helping kids and their families become and remain active Louie’s Kids also established a program called Run Buddies. Run Buddies pairs groups of kids, of all shapes and sizes with volunteer runners who want to encourage kids to run. The program culminates in a 5k or 10k in which the kids and their mentors participate.
