Mets on the Move
Mets on the Move, presented by the Hospital for Special Surgery, is a fitness program dedicated to keeping kids active and healthy. In 2023, the Mets will work with 1,000 students at two local elementary schools. The program launches on May 1 and runs throughout the month to coincide with National Physical Fitness and Sports month.
Participating students received pedometer watches to track their physical fitness. The more steps they accumulate, the more Mets prizes they can earn.
The Amazin’ Mets Foundation has funded grants to numerous local organizations that offer programs which inspire our youth to stay active and healthy all year round, including New York Edge (to support their Girls L.E.A.D program as well as funding for new gym equipment and athletic gear for after school sports) and Flushing YMCA (to support children in their summer camp program).
