Kiz Kidz golf program promotes healthy lifestyle | Sunday Best
Do your kids love golf and do you want them to be healthy?
One way to do this is with the Kiz Kidz program through the Kevin and Brittany Kisner Foundation. The Kevin and Brittany Kisner Foundation was created as a way to help children grow.
Leanna Wanta, the executive director with the foundation, said the program was created in 2020 during COVID as a way to promote physical activity.
“We were trying to get kids playing golf, which was a safe activity at the time,” she said.
The program, which is an annual donation to the foundation, is for kids ages 5-18 and costs $50, she said. Kids in the program will receive a quarterly newsletter that has healthy eating tips, golf tips from Kevin Kisner and physical fitness tips.
“We send out a quarterly newsletter that has healthy eating tips, golf tips from Kevin, physical fitness, anything to incorporate a healthy lifestyle,” she said. “We provide them with a t-shirt, and they get to come to our annual fundraiser where they get to meet Kevin and any other golf pros. It’s a way to attract donors and get kids involved in a healthy lifestyle.”
When the program first started, Wanta said there were about 20 kids who signed up. That number increased after people found out about the meet and greet at the annual golf tournament.
As for why kids should join, Wanta said it’s an access point to Kevin and a good way to meet other kids and other golf pros who are at the meet and greet.
Kids who join have to reenroll each year and can join anytime throughout the year. To register, visit www.kisnerfoundation.com.
