Kicks R Us will provide voting opportunities at their first fundraising event, At Bat for Kids, a softball game and healthy kids’ expo at Tempe Diablo Stadium, 2200 W. Alameda Dr. in Tempe, AZ on May 22, 2010 at 5pm. Hosted by Disney Channel's Alyson Stoner, the childhood obesity awareness event will feature a concert by Radio Disney contest winners, Jonnie and Brookie, local dance schools and martial art studios, plus fun "edutainment" stations to encourage families to lead healthy lifestyles.

"After learning of Kicks R Us charter and mission, it was glaringly obvious there are committed organizations ready to fight childhood obesity but lack the necessary tools and platform," said Nabil Aidoud co-founder of FiVi.
Proceeds from the At Bat for Kids event benefit Kicks R Us, an Arizona based organization that strives to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic by promoting physical activity and smart nutrition choices to under-resourced youth through collaborative partnerships with Athletes, Celebrities, Doctors, Fitness Trainers, Registered Dietitians, Mental health professionals and Motivational Speakers.
"Childhood obesity has sadly become a public health crisis and it is essential for all of us (nonprofits, for profits, celebrities, athletes, parents, schools and communities) to support grassroots efforts and develop solutions that work to fight this epidemic," said Kicks R Us Board Member Centria Ewings.
