Elevate Phoenix + Healthy LifeStars In Support of Kids

Elevate Phoenix is a unique program for Arizona youth, modeled on Colorado UpLift, a  successful non-profit organization in Denver. For more than 30 years, Colorado UpLift has worked to help at risk students in the Mile High City succeed.

Impressively, ninety percent of high school seniors who have been in Colorado UpLift’s program for three years or more graduate from high school, and of these graduates , over 90 percent enroll in post-secondary education.

Together with urban public schools and communities, Elevate Phoenix works to strengthen character, empower knowledge and elevate relationships.

Healthy LifeStars is proud to partner with Elevate Phoenix to help the program’s children  learn  how regular exercise, healthy eating and goal setting can contribute to their  successful future.

Well Done, Whittier!

The Whittier Healthy LifeStars are leading the way in showcasing the importance of healthy living from the inside out.

The active youngsters are not only tracking their impressive running and walking mileage, but focusing on the importance of whole health living.

Their coaches report discussions about the importance of positive thoughts and how such thinking can influence physical health.

They have planted a garden and their vegetables are “growing healthy and strong just like their minds!”

Families are taking an interest in the “I Can Do It At Home” activity sheets and all have been returned and signed.

The coaches and kids discuss the importance of including the five food groups during their time together and the conversation is continuing at home.

The Wilson Family reports “We encourage our children to choose three vegetables during the ay or three at dinner.”

Outstanding job, Whittier!
