See America Fit Again

For some time now I have had an idea to help get people in the US get healthier by giving out jump ropes to 6th graders across the country – and at the same time teach them the principles of eating whole, clean food.

I want to give out 1,000 jump ropes in each of the 50 states = 50,000 jump ropes in 2018.

In 2019 I want to give out 100,000 jump ropes dispersed among all countries in the free world.

I will get big companies for major sponsorships to give out about 1/2 of the jump ropes – the rest can be purchased by anyone to donate to youth and help create healthy habits.

One of the first things that I need to work on is a Sponsorship Guide that provides different levels of sponsoring – dollar levels, benefits, etc.  Opportunity for exclusive sponsorships, including fitness companies, health food companies, supplement suppliers, travel sponsors (hotel, transportation), etc.

To really make this idea work, we (I at this point), will need to create some really nice partnerships between trainers, teachers, gyms, schools, grocery stores, sponsors – and maybe even some jump roping teams.
