About Mardy Fish Children’s Foundation
Founded in 2007, the Mardy Fish Children’s Foundation collaborated with Pelican Island Elementary School providing enrichment and tennis programs. These programs provided a safe environment for children to participate in such activities as tennis, dance, gardening, sports, and art. The Foundation is now stronger than ever, with the recruitment of new leadership, the addition of more volunteers and advisers and a new, heightened commitment and partnership with schools, teachers, families, and community. Our vision is to inspire and transform the lives of all children by supporting and developing healthy and positive youth development programs. Currently, MFCF supports over 2,400 children throughout Indian River County, Florida by funding after-school exercise, nutritional and enrichment programs in a safe environment to prepare them for healthy, productive, and successful lives. The Foundation introduced the “Six Healthy Habits” in 2012 which are Get Sleep; Drink Water; Exercise Daily, Eat Healthy; Brush and Floss; Make Friends.  If you would like additional information on the Mardy Fish Children’s Foundation, visit their website at www.mardyfishchildrensfoundation.org.
