THE ROBERT ROYAL FOUNDATION is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to help raise awareness and tackle childhood obesity by promoting education, fitness and overall health in schools and communities. The foundation is also committed to empower the youth of New Orleans in how to deal with social and cultural issues within their community such as youth violence and gun prevention. We strive to provide children with the educational tools enabling them to grow into productive adults and reach their future success, bridging the gap between having a dream and achieving it through strength, courage and determination.
Our goal is to increase active participation in health and fitness, sports, and education, to help reduce and eliminate childhood obesity. The Robert Royal Foundation also offers life enrichment programs dedicated to developing the youth in how to deal with social and cultural issues within the community. As an organization we have set key objectives to help reduce the financial burden facing many of the youth today as they progress within their chosen sports and educational goals. The inspiration that NFL athletes bring to young people and local communities in the New Orleans area is fantastic and we want to support and grow their positive influence. The foundation tackles the barriers of sports, overall health, education, and youth violence prevention to rural and remote communities in greater New Orleans area, and to provide opportunities for ongoing professional development.
