Congratulations to our winners!

Healthy Lombard would like to express its appreciation to many businesses and organizations for making our Flat Apple 2018 Summer Program huge success.  We were able to engage 196 students, ages preschool through high school, this summer in a variety of activities that kept them moving during the summer months.

 

First a huge Thank You to Lombard Historical Society for allowing us to distribute the prizes from Flat Apple Summer 2018. Sarah Richardt their Executive Director, is fantastic to work.  She allowed us the use of the William J. Mueller Memorial Gazebo for our Prize Presentation.  Bill Mueller, the former President of the Village of Lombard, was the co-founder of Healthy Lombard and being able to conclude our summer activity at the Gazebo erected in his memory makes it seem that he is still participating in providing opportunities for kids and their families to get and stay active thus helping to reduce the Childhood Obesity statistics in DuPage County.

We would also like to say a special thank you to the National University of Health Sciences for providing two volunteers.  The students checked in the winners, played outdoor games with them, and help distribute the prizes.

Finally, we need to acknowledge the many businesses that either donated or greatly reduced the cost of the prizes.  They include:

Addison Ice Arena

The American Girl Doll Company

Chicago Bears

Chicago Cuba

Chicago Sky

Chicago Wolves

Chipotle

Culvers of Lombard

For any interested reader, our next event is Apple Crunch Day on October 11th.  At noon, or anytime during that day, Healthy Lombard is encouraging folks to “crunch” on an apple and then either post their selfie on our Instagram Page or send it to us at jay@healthylombard.com for posting on our Healthy Lombard Selfie Facebook Page.  This special day is being conducted in association with 2017 Great Lakes Apple Crunch sponsored by the National Farm to School Network during Farm to School Month.
