Kidz Play Hard is a community-wide program for children all ages to help prevent childhood obesity. The goal of Kidz Play Hard is to teach children about the importance of health and wellness at an early age while having fun.
Too many times, children go home from school and play video games, watch TV or play on the computer. Sure, it keeps them busy, but at what cost?
Now more than ever, children need to be engaged in physical activity. Childhood obesity has steadily increased over the past decade, and is showing no signs of slowing down.
Research Has Shown That Children Who Are Physically Fit
* HAVE A STRONGER IMMUNE SYSTEM!
* PERFORM BETTER IN SCHOOL!
* HAVE A HIGHER SELF-ESTEEM!
* ARE AT LOWER RISK OF TYPE 2 DIABETES AND BECOMING OVERWEIGHT!
* ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE PHYSICALLY ACTIVE WHEN THEY ARE OLDER!
Kidz Play Hard Club members will have the chance to take part in various fun, ongoing weekend programming and educational resources throughout the year to help promote a healthy lifestyle, so it’s become a natural part of our kid’s daily lives.
