Every Fall and Spring, we help coordinate running programs at local elementary schools using the latest lap tracking technology. See our programs at Christa McAuliffe, Del Rio Elementary, Libby Elementary, Laurel Elementary, San Luis Rey Elementary, Stuart Mesa, South Oceanside Elementary, and Temple Heights Elementary. This year, students who run 50 miles will receive a Miles of Smiles shoelace to congratulate them on their efforts!

Live Well San Diego named the foundation a partner and proclaimed April 5th Move Your Feet Before You Eat! Day in San Diego County.

Our goal for Fall 2019 is to raise $38,000 to provide Student Laptrackers to the public elementary schools in Oceanside for 2 years. This system is very simple, inexpensive and effective. Our OUSD fitness statistics are in great need of improvement. Let’s give teachers a hand. After we get the elementary schools going we will help out Middle and High School. We need your help.

Donation can be made through the link below or you can send a check to Move Your Feet Foundation 603 Seagaze Dr. #968 Oceanside, CA 92054. Tax ID Number 26 – 0816292.

New for 2019: Students received Miles of Smiles shoelaces for each increment of 50 miles in a year!

The goal of the program is to have students average at least one mile per day to help put a smile on the face and improve focus in the classroom.

We believe “Miles of Smiles” will help each student reach their goals of good mental, physical and emotional health. To receive your shoe laces, contact us at [email protected] or use the contact form to the left.
