Join the Safari June 23
June 22nd, 2012
United Way of Greater Chattanooga is partnering with Hamilton Place Mall, the Chattanooga Times Free Press, the YMCA, and the Creative Discovery Museum to bring you the KID FITNESS SAFARI on Saturday, June 23 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Bring your children and explore the Kid Fitness Safari Trail, where you and your child will learn about simple ways to stay fit and active! You'll also have a chance to win prizes.
How it works
On Saturday, June 23, come to the Center Stage area in Hamilton Place to register for the Safari trail. You'll receive a trail map when you register. Just follow the map and complete all 10 activities along the Kid Fitness Safari Trail. There will also be healthy snacks for kids all day.
Your child may win a Kid Fitness Safari Prize Pack and will be registered for a chance to win our GRAND PRIZE from Kaplan Early Learning: The SKYARD SUMMIT. This climber looks and feels like real rock! You can see it on display at the Center Stage area in Hamilton Place.
Why Kid Fitness?
One of the biggest problems facing this country is childhood obesity. Not only does it affect a child's health, it also affects their ability to learn! According to the Mayo Clinic, childhood obesity is a serious medical condition that affects children and adolescents. One of the best strategies to combat excess weight in children is to improve their diet and exercise levels. This helps protect their health now and in the future.
