According to Healthy Lombard Foundation Board President Jay Wojcik, “We had over 70 family with approximately 150 kids take part last year! We hope to increase that number this year with our new Activity Tracker option and with our Weekly Challenge Question. Flat Apple is for both athletic and non-athletic child. Our goal is for kids to have a great experience and be motivated to stay active during the summer.
Participation Prizes will include a bike, exercise equipment, gift cards, etc. Winners will be selected at the August Healthy Lombard Partner meeting. Prizes will be distributed in September.
