KSS started as an all volunteer organization. In 2010, in order to scale to reach more kids, KSS began developing organizational capacity for growth. This expansion was funded by a two year grant from a generous anonymous donor.
Anne Byrne joined KSS as its first Executive Director in April 2010. “Their gain. Our loss.” So summarized a Denver Post reporter in a story about Anne Byrne’s decision to move to Arizona as the first executive director for Kids Sports Stars. In Denver, Anne served as executive director of Summer Scholars, a non-profit dedicated to helping low-income students make major academic strides during summer. "I look forward to the opportunity to take KSS programs to scale,” says Anne. “I am excited to join the KSS team and continue the amazing work done so far. Preventing childhood obesity and promoting active healthy lifestyles are key issues for young people, and KSS has the right tools and determination in place to make a difference."
