39% of Richmond children live in poverty. Of these children who live in poverty, statistics show that 84% will remain impoverished by late 20s. But there is hope. Children involved in fitness-related activities have a greater chance of success through improved social skills, self-discipline, confidence levels, & self-esteem. Despite these benefits, children living in poverty are 3x more likely to be inactive!
