About PHIT America?
PHIT America is a cause and campaign dedicated to increasing physical activity and fitness to improve the health of all Americans. PHIT America was launched in January 2013 with the support of more than 100 companies and organizations. While the name PHIT sounds like FIT, it also has another meaning. PHIT stands for Personal Health Investment Today. We feel we must invest in personal health through fitness to improve the health of Americans, especially our children.
What is the PHIT Act?
The PHIT Act is legislation pending in Congress which will allow Americans to use Pre-Tax Medical Accounts to pay for physical activity expenses. The PHIT Act will provide an incentive for adults and their children to get fit which will help prevent healthcare costs related to preventable chronic diseases.
How can I help?
Donations to PHIT Americaa are used to Help A Child Become Fit & Healthy. We are focused on helping children overcome two major issues - health and academic performance. We have documented the tremendous benefits of physical activity for personal health on this web page. The second area, improving academic performance, is captured on this web page.
