Recess Rocks!
is a program designed to combat the effects of childhood obesity, which in turn, can lead to heart disease.  Jordan's Family foundation is hoping for between 2,500 and 3,000 students to be in attendance at Lakewood Park.  Please help us exceed this estimate by bringing out your family. 

Here are some of the fun and educational activities planned for those in attendance:

Games- This portion consists of several fun filled games from an obstacle course to hula hoops to a rock-climbing wall. 

Slam Dunk It!- A basketball court or hard surface with volunteers to help kids with their reflexes and quick motion drills.

Walking Trail- This activity encourages kids to take a walk around the grounds of the event.  Students are provided with fun ways they can stay fit simply by walking.

Fresh Farm- Provides a place for farmers and retailers to showcase local produce and allows families to learn about nutritious food options.

Check it Out!- Supplies families with information on living a healthy lifestyle and links them to resources available with the community.
