It was called the Great Kayak Comeback, but in reality the Great Comeback was Fit 4 the Causes’ Board of Directors, jumping in and raising over $20K to keep this little non-profit going strong!! This was our first live action fundraiser where we could break out of our zoom squares & return ...to our action oriented “fun” raising shenanigans. Lockdown got in the way.

Special thanks to Jessica Julian for chairing this special event and keeping everyone safe on the water!!

Thank you to David Kestenbaum for hosting-opening his home and dock!

And thanking our after party host Heywood Friedman.

Everyone needed some food & beverage to recharge after their strenuous strokes.

And let's not forget the Kayak provider & fundraising chair Jack Edelstein.

The winning team was team #3 but the real winners are the nearly 2000 beneficiaries including vulnerable children, at risk teens and fragile seniors who love our group exercise programs. This funding allows us to continue full steam ahead with a steady course of action.

Very successful Kayak Comeback 🎉 Spent a gorgeous day at the lake with our amazing volunteers and board members, hosted at a beautiful home. By racing around the lake our wonderful board members raised $20,000!!! 🥳🏋️‍♀️

While Public Schools are reopening this Fall, physical education programs need urgent funding.

When budgeting for the Fall 2021 school year, there was uncertainty about how our classrooms would operate, particularly in a gym environment.

Fit 4 The Cause has a stellar reputation... serving our public schools and we just received appeals from our local principals, asking our organization to provide physical fitness for their students (Grades K-6th).

Your dollars will enable us to continue our crucial work enhancing the health and well-being of the predominantly low-income youngsters we serve in Ventura County through our innovative, diverse fitness programs.

Please help and donate and join us to improve the lives of the children in Ventura County, California who are at considerable risk for obesity and other health problems that arise from poor nutrition and lack of exercise. Your support can make a significant difference in the quality of these children's lives, now and into the future.

Please donate any amount small or large makes a difference in a child's well being. We love bringing Zumba®Kids to Schools and to our Local Parks.
