The Healthy Lombard Foundation’s mission is to fight the childhood obesity epidemic and promote healthier lifestyles.
With this in mind, Healthy Lombard developed the Flat Apple Fitness Program to encourage children to stay active outside of school during the summer months.
This year, in addition to physical activities that focus on physical wellbeing, new functions such as “Mindfulness Assembly” to promote social-emotional learning (SEL), “Wellness Wednesdays” to promote physical activity and “Gourmet Fridays” to promote physical Activity added healthy eating and cooking.
Every week registered participants will receive a short newsletter from Healthy Lombard detailing the various ways to collect “tickets”.
Registered participants can keep track of their “tickets” throughout the duration of the program by completing the tracker provided by Healthy Lombard.
At the end of summer, entrants will use their eligibility tickets to win a variety of prizes.
The 2021 program runs from June 13th to July 31st. The winners will usually be contacted in September.
