Fitness Fits Everyone!
On Sunday, September 30 from 1 – 5 p.m. the 3rd Annual Fitness Fits Everyone! (formerly Recess ROCKS!) presented by Jordan’s Family Foundation will turn Lakewood Park into a large playground and feature dozens of energizing activities for kids and families to have fun and play while also learning a bit about healthy living.
Last year’s event was attended by 3000+ guests with over 75 organizations (including the Cleveland CAVS, Cleveland Indians, American Heart Association, Cleveland Clinic and many others) participating in the fun. The event will give elementary and middle school aged kids an opportunity to commit to better health through games and activities while offering parents a host of new ideas for keeping the whole family healthy.
Fitness Fits Everyone! is an heart-healthy and activity-based event and just one way Jordan’s Family Foundation is fighting childhood obesity, which in turn, can lead to heart disease. We are estimating approximately 4000 – 4500 children, along with their families, will take part in the event this year.
All those in attendance will be given a large menu of options for their day at the “playground” ranging from physical challenges and sports to educational information and nutrition. A portion of Lakewood Park will be divided into activity stations where each station provides an opportunity to quickly engage kids in healthy activities while not detracting from the real purpose of the day – playing. There will also be informational booths set up throughout the event to distribute promotional material about your organization and healthy living.
Ultimately, the goal of Fitness Fits Everyone! is to create a fun environment for families to learn about healthy living and for kids to make a commitment to be healthy while having fun with other kids in the community.
