The Mayor’s Youth Fitness Initiative (MyFi) was introduced by former Mayor, Tom Leppert. This program seeks to make a long-term difference – not just a difference through a single program in a single year. The existing role of the Dallas parks system is a valuable resource that can be utilized as a key delivery system for MyFi in Dallas. Already 18,361 kids use the park system. This initiative will also work to make Dallas Parks and Recreation Centers a more vibrant and fundamental part of the incremental change to a healthy and productive community, utilizing the centers as a primary distribution vehicle for MyFi programs. MyFi’s focus is to engage all kids, including those who aren’t involved in activities and sports.
