New “Health at Home” Resources for Parents Dealing with School Closures

March 18, 2020


Just like you, we are trying to keep our kids healthy and active in the midst of Coronavirus-related school closures. To help all our families, we’ve set up a Google Classroom to provide free and easy access to several of CATCH’s evidence-based health, nutrition, and physical education materials. These activities require limited space and supervision, and are organized into three sections: Physical Activities, Activity Breaks and Family Health and Nutrition.

As a nonprofit organization, we rely on the support of our friends and partners to be able to provide free access to our high-quality, evidence-based health and wellness curriculum to schools. If you would like to contribute to these efforts, please consider a donation to CATCH Global Foundation.

Below are some additional ways you can help to get these resources into the hands of people who need them.
