STRENGTHENING FAMILIES PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY
"Turning Empty Spaces Into Social Places"
ROLLIN' BUCKEYEZ FOUNDATION
Established as a 501(c)(3) Non-profit in 2015 the mission of the RollinBuckeyez Foundation (RBF) is to provide social and recreational activities to children and families that strengthen bonds and proactively address health and wellness through the art of movement and self-expression.
In Cuyahoga County...
16.1% of high school (2) and 13.5% of middle schoolers youth self identified as obese (3).
49.6% of highschoolers and 51.5% of middle schoolers spend three or more hours per day on screens (2, 3).
83% of Cleveland children live within ten minutes of parks and recreation centers
HOWEVER... access doesn’t always mean safe, high quality and well programmed spaces. There is a wide gap of available amenities within the city and county. Some parks and centers are well funded, maintained with consistent programming while others appear neglected and are not safe and suitable places for our children.
With the increasing epidemic of chronic childhood and adult diseases, we provide community outreach programs in efforts of educating you on health related issues as a creative way of encouraging preventative care at an early age. These are hands on programs which allow the participants the exposure to interact with individuals. RollinBuckeyez Foundation supports initiatives that encourage individuals to maintain a healthy lifestyle and alternatives to traditional exercise.
