About Us


Adopt-a-Gym is a “by kids, for kids” fundraiser where schools raise funds to purchase physical education equipment for other schools that are short on resources to purchase adequate equipment for themselves. Funds are raised by students through fun fitness events such as fun runs, dance-a-thons and other creative active events.

What We Do

We find Donor Schools

ANY teacher can be the changemaker for their students; teaching them to BE the change they want to see in the world. NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL!

We Run Fun Fitness Fundraisers

In a single hour, bring your community together to sponsor kids being fit in the way of your choosing!

We Adopt Schools In Need

If you or a school you know lacks the funding & equipment your students deserve, apply as a recipient school!

We motivate

Perfect for a community that’s looking for a motivational speaker experienced in perseverance, resilience, empathy & equity!


One gym at a time…and counting!!

Every year, we help more and more schools! The more donors we have, the more P.E. programs we help!

Our school got 7 feet of water and was destroyed...We had lost everything. Adopt-a-Gym has provided me and my students with much needed equipment to help us get back on our feet. We are so excited and grateful for their kindness! Thank you so much! ADOPT-A-GYM ROCKS!!!

Adopt-a-Gym is not just a terrific program, it's an institution that should be implemented across the US. Students are able to see first hand the impact of their charity on children just like them. It has forever changed my life and the lives of my students.

Educating our students that they can help others and make a true impact is priceless. It is such an incredible experience to help schools in need through FUN events that promote fitness and philanthropy.
