Let's Move!

Making Kane County Fit For Kids had their 1st 5K run/walk on 9-20-15. We had 110 participants. Everyone had a chance to try new fruits and vegetables, spinal health screening, wellness checks, and the health department was spreading the message about the negative effects smoking and drinking have on the body. I worked the registration that day. It was a great way for the community to get moving. I had a blast and cannot wait to volunteer for this event again.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

This was the first time most of us have done something like that before. The challenge was the unknown.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We are hoping to do this event yearly.

How did you accomplish your goals?

I had a blast volunteering for the community.
