Health and physical education (HPE) classes teach lifelong healthy habits that will help children grow up into healthier adults with less risk for chronic disease and diabetes.

As a parent you play a vital role in making sure there is adequate support for health and physical education programs in your child's school.

Help SHAPE America Prepare All Children To Lead Healthy and Active Lives

Approximately 50 million students are currently enrolled in America's elementary and secondary schools (grades pre–K to 12). SHAPE America wants to ensure that by the time today's youngest students graduate from high school in 2029, all of America's young people are prepared to lead healthy and active lives through effective health and physical education programs. We call this commitment 50 Million Strong by 2029.

As a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, SHAPE America relies on public support to continue our mission. If you would like to help us reach our goal, please consider a donation today.
