We’re helping kids in the Pacific Northwest get active.
Every Kid Sports and PHIT America have partnered with the Julia Love Pritt Foundation to provide the Every Kid Sports PNW Pass
and PHIT America’s AMPED to families throughout Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming.
The Every Kid Sports PNW Pass
Are you a living in the Pacific Northwest and having trouble covering your child’s sports registration fees? The PNW Pass program helps low-income families in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming get up to $150 to cover sports registration fees. It’s simple. We pay, kids play.
AMPED School Running Program
Are you a Pacific Northwest school and ready to get AMPED?
The AMPED program is an easy to implement, morning exercise program for kids. It includes a unique program design and highly effective motivators that are fun and engaging for kids, teachers,
and parents. It’s a consistent activity that get’s kids moving, builds esprit de corps, and primes their brains for learning!
Love to move.
The Julia Love Pritt Foundation’s funding of the Pacific Northwest Pass and AMPED Program creates an eco-system of health for kids. By activating both the PNW Pass and AMPED programs, kids have a path of progression to get and stay in sports.
Through the AMPED program, we engage kids through their elementary school with a daily running program. The AMPED program is an easy to implement, morning exercise program that includes unique program design and highly effective motivators that are fun and engaging for kids, teachers, and parents. It promotes physical literacy, commitment, community, and healthy habits.
To encourage continued participation and diversity of activity, low-income families can apply for the PNW Pass to pay for the registration fees associated with after-school sports programs. The combination of these two programs provides a path for a life positively influenced by exercise.
July 9, 1932 – April 3, 2010
Julia Pritt was a Seattle-area philanthropist and co-founder of Attachmate, one of the most successful privately held software companies in the history of Washington state.
Julia started her early philanthropic activities by volunteering her time in Plano and Seattle with organizations like YES (Youth Eastside Services) and then, after retirement, started her own non-profit, WWIN (Washington Women in Need). Since 1990 the organization’s full-time staff has provided over $10 million in financial aid to more than 4000 low-income women with a focus unique to women’s needs.
Among the extraordinary gifts Julia founded Julia’s Place (a homeless family shelter in the Madrona neighborhood), and Washington Women in Need and donated land for a beautiful Issaquah Park. The Julia Pritt House, a shelter for homeless in Issaquah, was named in her honor.
Even though Julia was a very accomplished business woman and philanthropist, her true passion was her family.
Her generosity and her heart guided everything she did and today the Julia Love Pritt Foundation is continuing its commitment to women, homelessness, and impact the health and wellness with at-risk kids by helping them lead a more active lifestyle through physical education and youth sports experiences.
