A free program for ten to fourteen year old children is available by Healthy Kids 2011. The program aims at fighting childhood obesity and helps them learn, understand and develop habits to lead to healthy and active lives.
This is a six-month effort which begins November 23 and leads up to the First Coast Kids Triathlon in May. Applications need to be filled out and returned, by parents by November 19th.
The Healthy Kids 2011 program offers a full medical physical for each child. It also includes all the equipment they need to complete the triathlon, access to the Brooks Family YMCA, coaching and field trips.
It will be the responsibility of all guardians to get the kids to the weekly sessions each Tuesday at 4 p.m. at Brooks Family YMCA.
