Laveen-based Smoothie Run Internet Cafe is partnering with the Live Pure Kids program at Laveen Elementary School.
IMG_0111Live Pure Kids focuses on educating children on disease prevention, holistic living, the organic lifestyle, and things to be aware of in this world when it comes to the water they drink, the food they eat, and the air they breathe.
Gavin Tucker, an 8th grade ELA teacher  at Laveen Elementary School  started the after school program. “Our mission with LPK is to change the lifestyles of our next generation who have been stated to be the first in history to not live passed their parents,” Tucker said.
 When the group had its first event on Feb. 29, the kids “fell in love with Smoothie Run.  The students love how the smoothies have fruits and vegetables as well as their choice of almond milk.”
Smoothie Run owner Marcus Moody plans to sponsor the program with a Smoothie Run night every other Tuesday to raise money for Live Pure Kids.  Tentative plans call for all sales between 4 and 7  p.m. in  which a patron at Smoothie Run mentions Laveen Elementary, 20 percent of the proceeds will be given to the Live Pure Kids.  The next events are set for April 19, May 3 and May 17.
Below are photos from the most recent event on April 5 at Smoothie Run, 51st Avenue and Baseline Road.
