     The Dairy Alliance is a nonprofit organization that works on behalf of the dairy farm families of the Southeast. It also is a community partner with the Atlanta Falcons Youth Foundation for the Fuel Up to Play 60 program (FuelUptoPlay60.com). The Foundation has provided a grant to The Dairy Alliance to pilot the Dairy Alliance’s F.I.T. Girls Rise Up! Program in Gwinnett County as a result of their focus on the disparity between the male and female middle school population in aerobic capacity and involvement in youth sports.
