“NEVER GIVE UP!!”

Kurt is riding to inspire children to recapture their birthright: strong, healthy, active minds and bodies! The withering effects of physical inactivity, coupled with junk food and Screen Addiction (video games, internet, TV, & social media preoccupations), are literally stealing our children’s mental and physical health—our greatest national treasure! Kurt’s passionate outreach to children encourages them to rediscover FUN in outdoor physical activity and the joys of regaining their personal strength and fitness.

One Quiet Night

Phone rings. Bad accident. She will live – but her leg. Gone.

‘Roadside bomb’ the phone says: son’s arm & foot destroyed.

Jake, 8, cried himself to sleep. No foot/no more running. Then a Pirate Camp email zoomed in: he grabbed the lifeline & hung on with all his heart…

Where CAN they turn for help? For genuine HOPE?

We help rebuild shattered lives. One prosthesis (and hug) at a time. With LOVE…

SAVING
OUR KIDS

Kurt is a fitness role model. Encourager. Motivator.

There is NO MAGIC WAND to rescue our kids!

America’s kids suffer: severe inactivity epidemic.

Dead-end Screen Addictions masquerade as “play.”

TV, video games, internet, social media zap strength.

Self-destructive Junk Food habits build weak bodies.

Help kids Learn to have FUN getting FIT –

Reclaiming kids’ physical & mental health:                                            

Vigorous, consistent physical activity& good nutrition.

Kids: “lifetime recreational sports” (biking, tennis)!

HAVE FUN GETTING FIT! YOU CAN DO IT!!!                                                     

Exercise is king and nutrition is queen: together, you have a kingdom
