Fit Kids Day at Peacock Park
Since 2012, thousands of families have attended this event that allows children to try a variety of outdoor activities and healthy food, free of charge. Stations are set up with professional trainers that allow children to explore physical activities they might have never experienced, such as soccer, lacrosse, tennis, martial arts, and rock climbing.
Kids are also encouraged to try a host of nutritious foods. The hope is that this exposure will incentivize them to become permanently involved in sports and healthy eating to combat childhood obesity. Commissioner Russell and the District 2 Office fully support this local initiative that brings awareness to a nationwide issue.
