“Health and fitness are essential to every student’s ability to learn and grow, and thanks to Jamba Juice, thousands of students across the country will have jump ropes, basketballs and fun and engaging equipment to keep their mind and bodies healthy,” said Charles Best, Donorschoose.org Founder and CEO.In addition to the athletic equipment provided to public schools in 2012 through DonorChoose.org, Jamba also provided athletic equipment during Team Up For a Healthy America fitness clinics. Jamba, together with campaign partners from the WNBA and USA Water Polo, hosted four fitness clinics that provided kids with the opportunity to learn about the importance of proper nutrition and keeping active from globally recognized athletes. Jamba leveraged these events to donate additional sports equipment to dozens of additional schools and community groups.
