A Practice with Purpose: Walker Orthodontics Partners with Play Fit Fun
As part of our ongoing commitment to strengthen the communities of SW Beaverton, Tigard, Hillsboro and Sherwood, Walker Orthodontics proudly sponsors organizations that have a powerful and purposeful mission to make a difference. As part of that, Dr. Walker and her team champion and celebrate organizations like Play Fit Fun, a local kid’s action nonprofit that shares our deep passion for cultivating a compassionate, inclusive, strong, healthy, courageous and connected community.
Technological advancements and the pandemic have drastically influenced the way we live, work, play and connect. Consequently, kids today are more likely to stay inside playing video games or watching TV, then actively moving their bodies. To remedy the next generation’s sedentary mentality, Play Fit Fun inspires, encourages and empowers kids to move and play every day. From after school action classes to camps and special events, the organization is effectively reimagining active play in the hearts, minds and spirits of kids and families in the Beaverton, Tigard, Hillsboro, Sherwood and Portland area communities.
Through sponsorships and monetary gifts, Walker Orthodontics has enabled Play Fit Fun to provide kid’s action classes to low income and special needs organizations, host a myriad of free community events (such as Family Field Days, The Kids Olympiad, The Girls Power Summit, etc.), and launch the Kid’s Action Bag program, in which Play Fit Fun donates and delivers sporting gear to children and families in need.
