Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Florida is returning as presenting sponsor of the Kids Fitness Festival of the Palm Beaches, which will be at the Palm Beach County Convention Center (650 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach) on Wednesday, July 19 and Thursday, July 20 from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The Kids Fitness Festival of the Palm Beaches will offer something for everyone. Elementary and middle school children can learn the basics of more than 45 traditional and non-traditional sports from the area’s leading instructors. Additionally, they can climb the rock wall, play games and interact with professional athletes.

“We are very excited about this year’s Kids Fitness Festival,” said Jeff Zipper, Kids Fitness Festival committee chair. “From our pre-registrations, we expect attendance will exceed last year. We are very appreciative of our presenting sponsor, Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Florida, and our other great partners. This event’s continued success would not be possible without their support.”

The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children. “The Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Florida is once again privileged to partner with the Palm Beach County Sports Commission and the Kids’ Fitness Festival to promote the well-being of children through sports,” said Soraya Rivera-Moya, executive director of RMHC of South Florida. “It is an excellent and well-planned event, something RMHC strongly supports. We hope to continue supporting the event and being part of it for years to come.”

Joining RMHC in sponsoring the Kids Fitness Festival is Prime Time Palm Beach County. Directed primarily at improving the quality of afterschool and out-of-school programs, Prime Time Palm Beach County provides opportunities for children and youth to succeed.
