Stealth Help Sticks-2 Schools to Get Kids Active

The future continues to be bright for the non-profit organization in Washington. Sticks-2-Schools exceeded its projections for the 2011-2012 school year, but 80 schools currently reside on the organization's waiting list. The goal for the upcoming academic year is to visit at least 20 schools. In order to do so, fundraising is key. It costs approximately $2,000 per school to implement the Sticks-2-Schools program into a PE curriculum. Fundraising efforts rely heavily on individual and corporate donations as well as numerous fundraisers and auctions throughout the year.

"In order to meet our goals for the coming year, it's very important for Sticks-2-Schools to get corporate support and sponsorship," said Watkins. "Individual donations and fundraisers will only take the program so far. We are able to offer corporations recognition through Sticks-2-Schools and Stealth events as a thank-you for their involvement. However, we would hope corporations would want to get involved because it's the right thing for our local youth."
