KidsFit Competition & Fundraiser Sponsored by Fuzzy’s Benefiting RHPTA Starts Continues!
  • The culinary students at South Hills High School working with Medical City Children's Hospital have created “KidsFit” menu items that Fuzzy's has placed on their menu.
  • The students have entered a contest with other culinary programs across the country to see whose menu items sell best over the next two months.
  • In order to help market their menu items, Fuzzy's has created a competition with the PTAs closest to the Fuzzy's on Bryant Irvin (RHE, JT Stevens and Benbrook) going on now through Sunday, March 18.
  • Every time someone orders from the KidsFit Menu and mentions the name of their school, $1 will be donated to that school. This includes dine in and take out.
  • The customer will be given a card to put in one of three clear boxes with the school’s logo. This will identify which school they are representing.    
  • The PTA purchasing the most KidsFit menu items during the four-month period will have a complimentary teacher appreciation lunch catered by Fuzzy's. 
  • Everyone wins!
  • Every meal purchased with the designated PTA will result in the PTA receiving $1.
  • The winning school's teachers will receive a free lunch.
  • The students at SHHS will increase their chances to win this national competition.
  • And most importantly, our kids will learn how to make healthier choices.
