Heal The Planet Sports

“Sports have the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does.” 
-Nelson Mandela

Heal The Planet believes part of a healthy lifestyle includes taking part in regular physical activity.

Sports are one way to create both physical and mental strength while bringing people together to achieve a goal. In sports, you learn how your body can adapt in ways you did not think possible while building strength, cardiovascular health, friends, and confidence. Sports are also a great way to reduce stress, increase mental power and build leadership.

In children, studies demonstrate that sports can positively contribute to personal development by improving personality and self-esteem, goal setting, and building stronger bones.

Heal The Planet is supporting a variety of sports activities throughout schools and colleges in our South Florida community. We host various age-inclusive events throughout the year for our local community to take part in.
