The Carlsbad-based Move Your Feet Before You Eat®! Foundation was created to promote health and well being through incorporating regular physical fitness into daily life, utilizing education, special events, and instructive coaching. It is for all ages, but its sharpest focus is on encouraging physical activity among young people, who face an epidemic of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes that are an increasing threat, in part, because today's children aren't getting enough physical activity.

Since 2007, the Foundation has donated more than $270,000 to local schools and non-profits in North County.

Combatting Childhood Obesity Since 2006

Move Your Feet Before You Eat Foundation is the brainchild of Kathy Kinane, who has a goal of instilling a champion mindset in young children, and combatting obesity through exercise.

The Foundation focuses on creating running programs in North County Schools providing training guides, Fitness Finder Kits, and incentives to get kids moving.

The Move Your Feet Before You Eat®! Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  Tax ID: 26-0816292.
