Carter Oosterhouse hosted the 5th annual fundraiser for his Carter's Kids Foundation on August 7th.
Carter's Kids aims to increase activity levels and fitness in children by building playgrounds and parks for communities. The children and community are an active part of the planning and building process. After the playgrounds are completed, the children are encouraged to help with the upkeep. This allows them to engage with their community and develop a sense of ownership and care for the space.
Carter says, "From my experience as a young kid building things, there is no greater sense of satisfaction when you see something that you've built being enjoyed by others. I hope to impart that same feeling in our young builders with Carter's Kids." The goal of the foundation is to combat childhood obesity by promoting activity, engagement, and nutrition.
The day started with a golf tournament in the beautiful Traverse City, Michigan, Carter’s hometown. Carter shared this funny picture from the tournament!
The dinner and entertainment portion of the event was not to be missed! Carter’s Kids thanked Carter and Amy for their leadership and vision, and shared this photo of them introducing Andrew Dost of FUN.
Everyone agrees, the event was both fun, and a success. The sold out golf tournament and the money raised at the dinner and party will go towards an amazing charity. So far, playgrounds have been built across America, and Carter shows no signs of slowing down!
