Sweat for DMF Youth!

Raise money from friends, family and coworkers through fitness classes, races and challenges! There is nothing greater than a great cause to help you achieve your fitness goals! Challenge yourself to run a 5K, half-marathon or marathon, organize a benefit class with your favorite fitness instructor, or collect pledges from colleagues who want to see you do 50 lunges a day at the office!

Host a “party with a cause!”

There’s nothing better than wine, cheese, and good friends. Invite your favorite people over and host a charity bash, challenging your friends to pledge to the cause. Whoever pledges the most, gets a prize, or a bottle of wine, etc

Ways to Volunteer

We welcome volunteers both in and out of the classroom.

Since we work with underserved youth, we ask for a once a week commitment from in-school volunteers so our kids have stability. Or participate in one of our “career days” where we have awesome folks come in and talk about their jobs and how they got there.

We also have “out of school” opportunities helping us with the back office of the non-profit. We also need help with things like PR, grant writing, fundraising, etc.

Have a service you think we might benefit from? We would love your help!

Program Request

Bring DMF Youth to a School, Shelter or Community Center

We customize programs based on grade level, PE requirements and in-school needs.

Email us with the name, location and contact info for the principal or person responsible for outsourcing and we will arrange an info session.
