The mission of the Healthy Lombard Foundation is to address the epidemic of childhood obesity and promote a healthier lifestyle for all community members through awareness, activities, and achievement. Based on this mission, Healthy Lombard developed the Flat Apple program to incentivize kids to stay active during summer. This Program is only occurring between now and August 9th with many great prizes that will be awarded in September.
To learn more about Flat Apple and register your child or recommend it to children you may know, visit www.healthylombard.com and click on the ‘Flat Apple’ link on the right side, under Quick Clicks.
This program is free of charge but participation requires an adult register each child. The Program is easy and fun, and all kids have to do is earn tickets by participating in 300 minutes of activity (per ticket) to win a prize! Prizes are raffled at the end of the summer.
Remember to log your child’s hours of physical activity by completing an activity tracker for up to ten tickets by AUGUST 9 (drop off or mail to Sunset Knoll Recreation Center at 820 S. Finley Road in Lombard, Attention: Flat Apple 2019, Joe McCann).
