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. The foundation provides free Move Your Feet Before You Eat! Refrigerator magnets, Mileage Club materials, incentive certificates for program leaders and participants, and motivational videos and speakers to schools throughout North County. The Foundation donates to schools and non-profits that encourage physical activity. 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 $365,000 to local schools and non-profits in North County.
