In Movement for Kids, Marian Schinske tells an uplifting story about the establishment of the nonprofit NovatoSpirit, which helps youth with financial needs participate in athletic activities in Novato. She highlights the joys and struggles of several NovatoSpirit kids, as they play new sports and learn life lessons.
There is Marisol, who tries karate for the first time; Bella, whose practice of tae kwon do helps her through dark times when her mother is ill; Miranda, who gains self-confidence through dance; and Selena, who says, I live and breathe to dance.
Schinske shows what it is like to start and run a nonprofit. She talks with affection about her Board of Directors, their fundraising events, and the nonprofits around Marin County with which NovatoSpirit is privileged to work.
