Help Create a Better Future for the Next Generation

You can play an integral role in helping the world understand that exercise is medicine. Your gift in any amount to the UC Irvine Pediatric Exercise and Genomics Research Center (PERC) will help fund studies that reveal the science behind exercise — and how physical activity can make life better for our children.

We welcome you to share in the passion, energy and innovation we have at PERC. We are making tremendous strides studying how children’s bodies respond to exercise. This knowledge is leading to life-changing therapies for children with asthma, cancer, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, obesity and a host of other special needs.

It could one day produce exercise prescriptions that optimize childhood growth and prevent adult diseases like diabetes, osteoporosis and atherosclerosis. 

Together, we can make transformative therapies a reality for children — both in our community and around the world.
