 Joe Osborne Foundation
Tomorrow, Tuesday November 25th 
12:00pm at the 226 Student Lounge

About the Foundation
Joe's interest in athletics began at a young age, and his interest in fitness is what lead him to studying in Swedish Institute's APT program.  Founded by his mother in his honor, the Joe Osborne Foundation's first project WeRFitness celebrates Joe's passion for fitness and aims to pass that on to children living in at-risk urban areas, through outdoor exercise gyms.

Our bake sale's proceeds will go directly to helping costs for the following WeRFitness programs in the new year, including: 
  • Outdoor exercise gyms
  • Sport domes for youth, equipped with dormitory
  • Scholarship programs
  • Local and community athletic leagues
  • University student clubs
  • Summer camps
How you can help:
Visit our bake sale tomorrow at the below dates and times to pay tribute to Joe and help us support the Foundation in his legacy. 

Another bake sale will be held on Tuesday, December 2nd - the same day as our APT Field Day and Movement Olympics.  Learn how you can attend and support the Joe Osborne Foundation and WeRFitness programs by clicking here
