In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ripken Foundation launched a new program called Virtual Fitness, which gives kids and families in the underserved communities access to healthy at-home exercises that contributes to the overall well-being of the communities we impact. We partnered with fitness consultant Chris Welsh, owner of Impact Fitness, to help us create a 12-week virtual fitness program that incorporates exercise, character education curriculum, and fitness challenges to engage kids with all abilities. The Ripken Foundation now has 23 sites running our virtual fitness program!
In addition, we have created a customized version of our Virtual Fitness program for one of our corporate partners, Group1001, for their employees to get them moving and active during quarantine.
