GCAPP’s Active Classroom/Flexible Seating Project for Atlanta’s Garden Hills Elementary School Needs Your Support!


Donate at $50+ And You’re Entered to Win Jane Fonda’s Bike!


The Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power & Potential (GCAPP) is doing its part, one flexible seating desk at a time, to address the issues of sedentary lifestyles and inactivity too closely associated with kids these days. 

In partnership with Garden Hills Elementary School we’ve established an Active Classroom-Flexible Seating Project to help create a class environment where students can be more active by providing fun, flexible seating options such as standing desks, desks with pedals, and ball desks. Teachers and students at Garden Hills tell us that they love the desks and want more!  Please help us help the students and teachers and Garden Hills.

Give $50 or more and you are automatically entered to win Jane Fonda's custom, folding bicycle (complete with carrying bag), given to her by the Simpsons TV show and autographed by Jane Fonda.  The winner will be notified by email or phone on Friday, Nov. 18 by 5:00 p.m.

* On average kids are sitting 85% of their waking hours
* Studies support that flexible seating in classrooms is a simple yet beneficial way to create an environment where children are more engaged and perform better academically, burn more calories, and feel happier.
* Kids burn between 15-25% more calories at standing desks than those who sit in regular desks
* Children who move more have greater creativity
* If kids are given the opportunity to move throughout the day, they will do so
* Nearly 1 million of Georgia’s children are either overweight or obese
