Who We Are

Healthy Lifestyle for Youth (HLFY) is a movement dedicated to movement, started by kids, for kids. The non-profit organization sponsors free fitness activities in the Bay Area and beyond and ensures any child with the drive also has the gear – free running shoes – to get on track to a healthy, happy, productive life.

“I wanted to share my passion for running with other kids and motivate them to live more active and healthy lifestyles. My goal for Healthy Lifestyle for Youth and the programs that our non- profit supports is to show 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 positively impact the quality of their lives.”~ Grace Lu, Founder & President


Our goal is to ensure all children have the means and inspiration to get on track to leading healthy, happy, productive lives through exercise, better eating and positive thinking.


Every child in America leads a healthy and active life.
