Welcome to The Grow 2B Fit Program, where families grow to be fit and learn to be healthy! We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that works with families in Tucson, AZ to help them learn about nutrition, exercise, and how to maintain healthy lifestyle habits for the whole family.

Please check out our links to great websites with tons of information, interactive games for kids and lots of ideas for parents on how to teach their children about healthy lifestyles, healthy recipes and how to make changes themselves! Please see our calendar for upcoming events and the dates of our Kidz Kamps.

Thank you to all the amazing volunteers and vendors who helped make this year’s Fit Fest even better than last year!.  Kids had a great time learning about healthy cooking, the Science of Exercise and got a chance to have tennis class which was the most popular activity of all.  We would like to say a special thank you to Maximum Impact Physical Therapy for helping plan the Fit Fest and hosting the Science of Exercise activity.  Thank you to the Garden Kitchen, the Grrrls Project, Pima County Health Department, TMC for Children, United Way, REACT, El Rio, Girl Scouts and the Skin Cancer Institute at U of A Cancer Center for coming out to help parents and kids learn about healthy lifestyle habits!

We have exciting news!!!!   The Apollo Teaching Kitchen had its grand opening on March 3rd, 2013, along with the grand re-opening of the Wellness Center.  Through community support and hard work by the Apollo Middle School and the Sunnyside School District #12, the teaching kitchen at Apollo Middle School has now been renovated and is being used to teach not only the students, but also the community through cooking and nutrition classes provided through the Apollo Community School program. 

We would like to thank our sponsors: Tucson Medical Center, TMC For Children, Commercial Carpet Cleaning, Fractured Earth Tile and Stone, Frog Repairs, Children’s Medical Center of Tucson, Diane Arnold of Lia Sophia, and Foothills Properties.
