Healthy Lifestyle for Youth (HLFY) is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that simply started out as one girl’s passion for running. The mentally and physically demanding sport inspired her to design her own line of personal running jewelry in order to motivate herself and other runners, which ultimately led to her starting her own running jewelry company (My Favorite Run) through the help of family and friends. Eventually, she decided to go one step further and start a non-profit organization designated to improving and promoting healthy lifestyles throughout the community.
Healthy Lifestyle For Youth shows young people that the simple everyday choices they make about things like what food they eat, how much they move and how positively they think, can strongly impact the quality of the life that they will live. We teach children how to be active and healthy. We teach kids about the physical and mental-health benefits of activities such as running and exercise in general, and help them develop a love for physical fitness through our various programs ranging from our Heart and Sole youth running club, Shoes that Inspire Program, participation in community events, and more.
