WHAT SETS THE COURSE IN A CHILD’S LIFE? WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THOSE WHO ACHIEVE AND THOSE WHO FALTER?

Creating those moments, those opportunities for children to
imagine what they could be is magical in its long term impact.

THIS IS WHY THE MARDY FISH CHILDREN’S FOUNDATION EXISTS.

HISTORY

/

STAFF

Founded by Mardy Fish, the former # 7 tennis player in the World, the Mardy Fish Children's Foundation collaborated with Pelican Island Elementary School in the Fall of 2007 providing enrichment and tennis programs. These programs provided a safe environment for children to go and participate in such activities as music, dance, art and sports. The Foundation has since grown to 15 elementary schools and 4 middle schools currently serving over 2,500 children in K-8th Grade.

 

The Foundation is now stronger than ever, with the recruitment of new leadership, the addition of more volunteers and advisors; and a new, heightened commitment and partnership with schools, teachers, families and community. This enables the Foundation to teach children to make better choices, empowering them by encouraging physical fitness, emphasizing healthy eating habits, and explaining how to have a positive self-image.

"Since tennis requires alertness and tactical thinking, it may generate new connections between nerves in the brain and thus promote a lifetime of continuing development of the brain, reported scientists at the University of Illinois."      Jack L. Groppel, Ph.D.     USTA.COM

In partnership with the School District of Indian River County, MFCF provides children opportunities to participate in fitness, nutritional and enrichment programs to prepare them to live healthy and productive lives.

We use sports as our textbook but teaching a child the skills to learn to reach beyond their grasp is the most important lesson we will ever deliver.
