Kids Lives Matter

Inspiring action for youth in our community in Bucks County, PA and across the nation

Kid’s Lives Matter is a group dedicated to the safety and health of kids of all ages and backgrounds. We cannot allow children to be marginalized during this time. We advocate for their well being at every level of community, society & government.

Supporting Safety & Health For All Kids

The idea is to formulate a group that can offer and organize a clearing house of programming and services for the youth of our community to support them in the areas of mental health, education, sociability, recreation, sports and more. Kids Lives Matter (KLM) is the brainchild of Newtown Athletic Club owner, Jim Worthington.

HERE’S WHY

According to the National Institute for Children’s Health Quality (NICHQ) Covid 19 has a detrimental impact in all these areas: social, mental, emotional, physical, educational, recreational, and more.

“Parents/carers of children aged 4-10 years of age reported that over a one-month period in lock down, they saw increases in their child’s emotional difficulties, such as feeling unhappy, worried, being clingy and experiencing physical symptoms associated with worry,” according to the University of Oxford.

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new data drawn from a survey done June 24 through 30. The data show a fourth of young adults in the U.S. said they “seriously considered suicide” in the month before they were surveyed.”

As a member of the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition, Mr. Worthington has been a part of launching the National Youth Sports Strategy introduced by the Department of Health and Human Services. This strategy provides a federal roadmap of actionable strategies to increase participation in youth sports – which has declined by over 5% in the last 5 years and continues to decline.
