Posted by Kyra Constam on November 9, 2017 at 10:45 AM

Blue Goji is proud to be partners with the incredible organization Partnership for a Healthier America, simply known as PHA. The nonprofit was created to complement First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! Initiative by: “bringing together public, private and nonprofit leaders to broker meaningful commitments and develop strategies that help ensure every child has the opportunity to grow up at a healthy weight.” This past week, on November 1st, a team of ours traveled to Washington, D.C for their annual Fit to Celebrate Gala. This event serves as a fundraiser for PHA, allowing them to continue combating childhood obesity on an everyday basis. We were particularly excited to attend this year’s event because our Co-Founder and CEO Coleman Fung was being honored with PHA’s Visionary CEO Award.

Blue Goji introduces Goji Stations to SuperChefs

Posted by Kyra Constam on August 24, 2017 at 3:34 PM

This summer on July 3, 2017, Blue Goji kicked off a partnership with SuperChefs as they began their Cookery for Kids Summer Camps in Surrey, Vancouver. At its core, SuperChefs aims: “to entertain and educate young children about the power of eating good food and sharing the joy of cooking.” Beyond teaching kids how to cook, they focus on fostering healthy lifestyles in the young campers. At the camp, kids learn how to properly fill their plate with certain categories of food and portion sizes. To teach how being healthy is about more than a good diet, the camp also has a physical activity portion where they typically play basketball for an hour and half, with a snack break. With our new partnership, one of the two schools that hosts the camp was set up with our Active Gaming Goji Stations, including Bluetooth-enabled stationary bikes, Oculus Rift headsets, iPads with all of our 2D games, and Goji Play controllers. After having a team of ours visit the school to set everything up, we didn't return until the last day of camp on August 17.
