2013 Grant Recipient: SWEAT Urban Squash

SWEAT Urban Squash

The Inukai Family Foundation is proud to award a grant to SWEAT Urban Squash of Portland, Oregon.  SWEAT partners with non-profits that serve low income communities. In Washington County, SWEAT works with Inukai Boys and Girls Club to provide free coaching in exercise, nutrition, and active lifestyles to 10-18 year-olds.

The SWEAT approach uses Squash Weights Education And Training to motivate youth to reach their individual fitness and personal goals. The program is offered free of charge and includes instruction, equipment, and facility use.

Through a grant from Inukai Family Foundation, SWEAT was able to add a second coach, with the mission of helping up to 200 underserved youth reach their full athletic potential over an 8-week program.
