Light Foundation Sponsors Greenville Goal Getters Program
On Friday May 11th2012 we wrapped up the Greenville Goal Getters program with a 2-mile buddy run at Chenoweth Trails. The run had 100+ runners and was a huge success; whole families came out to support their children who have participated in the 10 week fitness/nutrition program. After the run we had awards pictures and a party. We had all kinds of nutritional snacks and beverages and a lot of fun talking to the kids and families and hearing stories about how this program has made a real difference in the lives of the kids. We wrapped up the night with a very intense Frisbee football game on the new turf. The game started off with the kids and the program coordinators and very quickly the kids were grabbing their parents to join their team. And that right there is what this is all about - helping kids and families overcome obstacles and breaking down the perception that nutrition and fitness is boring or too much work. It helped to build closer family units that support, love and care for one another while having fun and being healthy.
