The Fox Valley Park District is taking a leading role in the battle against childhood obesity. Teaching children the importance of exercise and nutrition provides them a solid foundation for a healthy future.
In partnership with local agencies, the District helped create the “Making Kane County Fit for Kids” campaign. A major component of this campaign is the “Fit Kids 2020 Plan,” which provides guidelines, strategies and action steps to put children on a path toward healthy living.The plan includes initiatives and ideas that communities and residents can apply to a common goal. By working together, we create an environment where children make smart lifestyle choices that are beneficial toward their long-term health and well-being. Visit makingkanefitforkids.org.
