National Safe Surfacing Initiative Teams up with Presidents Council on Physical Fitness and Sports to "Get America Moving"

50th Anniversary Celebration Stresses Public-Private Partnerships       

Welch Product's playground safety division, The National Safe Surfacing Initiative® (NSSI), was recently recognized as a 50th Anniversary Partner to Get America Moving and has joined the 2006 yearlong celebration of the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports (PCPFS).

"We are proud to work with the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports as a 50th Anniversary Partner to Get America Moving," said Tim Mahoney, President of NSSI.  "We congratulate the Council for fifty years of challenging Americans to be safe, healthy and fit.

The NSSI partners with government agencies to improve the safety and ADA accessibility of outdoor play and fitness environments for young children, aiding in the development of both the strength and confidence of our youth as well as building life long habits of healthy activity through the use of the only rubber tile safety surfacing proven to reduce serious playground injuries. 

"We're delighted to have the National Safe Surfacing Initiative as a 50th Anniversary Partner to Get America Moving," said Melissa Johnson, executive director of the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. "We've established the 50th Anniversary partnerships to recognize the valuable contributions in health and fitness of our longstanding colleagues and friends and to establish relationships with new partners who are doing this vital work today."

"We've worked very hard to promote safety and fitness for children and it's an honor to be recognized as a 50th Anniversary Partner of the Presidents Council on Physical Fitness and Sports", stated Shannon Godwin, Director of Communications for the NSSI. "We believe that childhood fitness begins at an early age when young people first start out to challenge their minds and bodies in ways that require both mental and physical fortitude."

With the help of the National Safe Surfacing Initiative; communities, child care centers and elementary schools are able to provide healthier play and fitness environments for young children, preparing them for more physical challenges in the years ahead.

Godwin added, "Through the use of NSSI certified safety surfacing, we will continue to improve the safety and accessibility of outdoor play and fitness environments, and promote the fundamentals of play and fitness in early childhood.  Through our combined efforts, we will continue to promote the ideals of the Presidents Council on Physical Fitness and Sports for young people across the U.S."
