Our Mission

To advance and promote the education of the general public in assuming responsibility for:

  1. The improvement of the health and health behavior of all people

  2. The maintenance and improvement of the physical and mental well-being of all people

  3. The prevention of degenerative disease

Our History

Fitness Finders Foundation began in 1980 with funding from the Kellogg Foundation, the Hurst Foundation, and the Campbell Soup Company amongst others with the goal of improving the health of children across the country.

Dr. Kuntzleman, along with his wife Beth, developed Mileage Club in 1986 to disseminate the program farther and faster than he could on his own.


The Mileage Club is an all-inclusive walk/run club program for kids offering knowledge, support, and practical tools to track students’ mileage, while also motivating and rewarding them for their efforts and success. Mileage Club quickly became America’s #1 run club for kids – and still is!
