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 the “Triple-A Approach” of awareness, activities, and achievement.
With that mission in mind, Healthy Lombard developed the Flat Apple program to incentivize kids to stay active during the summer months outside of school. The 2020 program runs June 1- August 7. The program allows participants to earn tickets for eligibility to win a variety of prizes at the end of the summer. Prize winners are typically selected and contacted about their winnings in September.
To register your child, please visit www.healthylombard.com and select Flat Apple 2020 under the Quick Clicks Column on the right-hand side of the page. This link will take you to the registration site. There is no fee to register for Flat Apple. Children must be registered by an adult to participate in the program.
Flat Apple provides various opportunities to earn “tickets.” It is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
- Registered participants can log their physical activity for the summer and complete the activity tracker. The activity tracker can be found on the Healthy Lombard website at https://healthylombard.com/activity-tracker-2020/Every 300 minutes counts for one raffle ticket. Participants are encouraged to log as many hours as they wish, but please note the max number of tickets earned for completing the activity tracker is ten (3,000minutes). Tracker sheets should be returned to Sunset Knoll Recreation Center at 820 S. Finley Road in Lombard (Attention: Flat Apple 2020, Joe McCann). Sheets are DUE BY AUGUST 7.
- Registered participants may earn tickets by posting a “Healthy Selfie” on THEIR Facebook with #HealthySelfie. Or sending it to email@example.com. Participants may earn a total of 10 tickets by submitting “Healthy Selfie”
- Registered participants can submit a short video clip promoting healthy activity. These will earn the participant a raffle ticket and, after passing a review, be posted on the Healthy Lombard YouTube Channel.
