Healthy Lifestyle for Youth (HLFY) is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that was founded by Grace Lu with a simple idea: Healthy Change. We are committed to help youth lead healthier, more active lives. We encourage youth to get moving, set goals, and develop healthy habits like daily exercise and balanced diet. Your donation is an investment in children and youth.
Our SHOES THAT INSPIRE program is raising funds to help our vision of helping kids in need in the U.S. get new athletic shoes. Our goal is to significantly reduce childhood obesity by offering life-changing shoes to incredible kids to make them participate more in physical activities, become more healthy, attend school more often, and become more confident.
As you probably know, a sedentary lifestyle spells bad news for hips and thighs. A significant number of kids have started on this path, but we also know that kids can achieve a lot more when inspired to do what they love, especially physical activities, as New Shoes = New Hope. The Shoes That Inspire program, part of the non-profit organization ‘Healthy Lifestyle For Youth (HLFY)’ in Contra Costa County, CA, which simply started out as one girl’s passion for running, encourages a change in the lives of kids in extraordinary ways, enabling them to evade the downward cycle of obesity that lurks around and, instead, embrace and experience a more fulfilling future. Grace Lu, a passionate runner and founder of Healthy Lifestyle For Youth and Shoes that Inspire project , believes every child deserves to wear new and comfortable shoes that will enable them to feel confident, loved, cool, and good about themselves as well as inspire them to set ambitious goals, pursue their passion, and take action to reach their set goals. Every single pair of Shoes That Inspire makes a big difference in kids’ lives. We want to see every child in America have a pair of Shoes That Inspire—but that’s not all. We also want to get them moving and prepare them for a beautiful future in the 21st century.
At the Shoes That Inspire, we believe that every kid deserves a chance at happiness, and this is why we devote our faith, time, and resources to help kids successfully refocus their life on a more positive and productive future. We now have the opportunity to begin making a substantial impact on the lives of kids in the USA and would be sincerely grateful to you if you would consider joining us in this cause. Making a difference in a life of a child really is as simple as a new pair of running shoes.
We partner with volunteers to run the program right near our own community, and we work directly with schools to identify and measure the kids who need the shoes the most. It is our earnest desire to grow, expand and offer a greater number of kids in the USA more Shoes That Inspire, but as you can imagine, the cost of sponsoring this project requires assistance. And to meet this goal, we are asking for sponsorships from local businesses and individuals such as you. In the meantime, we must count on someone like you virtually for the success of this project, as your open-mindedness, right attitude, your prayer, as well as FINANCIAL SUPPORT, can see Shoes That Inspire through. Sponsorship can be done in the following ways:
1. You could sponsor a school in your own community, get shoes for kids in support of Shoes That Inspire program
2. You could donate new shoes/socks or money directly to HLFY
