Humboldt General Hospital is hoping to get kids moving this summer.
The facility, located at 118 E. Haskell Street, has announced plans to
launch “Fit Kids,” a fun summer program for kids entering
kindergarten through sixth grade.
The program will include five events over the summer—all designed
to get kids off the couch and into healthy activities.
Humboldt General Hospital Wellness Coordinator Billie Lucero said the program
is meant to be engaging, but she’s also hoping youth will leave
with lifelong health lessons as well.
“This is all about the kids having fun,” said Lucero, “but
it’s also about teaching kids what fitness means, and how they can
begin now to make fitness a very important part of their lives.”
The summer schedule will include:
Lucero said kids will receive one raffle ticket for every event they attend.
“Then on August 13 at our final event, we’ll hold a drawing
and give away brand new bikes to one boy and one girl,” she said.
Parents and/or guardians must chaperone their youth at each event. Pre-registration
is not necessary, and there is no charge to attend.
