Granite State FitKids was established in 1997 as a vehicle to help children learn about their bodies and how to take care of them. Through the dedication, the support and the awesome teaching of the following wonderful facilitators who have helped to keep the passion alive, we hope to pass the 30,000 mark by years end

The students, families, staff and communities all say thank you for all that you have done to enrich the lives of the leaders of tomorrow:
