This past May I had the opportunity to travel through Lambton County to Watford, Sarnia, Corunna, Mooretown, Sombra, Port Lambton, and Grand Bend to photograph the parks and facilities for the Healthy Kids Community Challenge.
What is the HKCC?
The Healthy Kids Community Challenge is an initiative that promotes children’s health and well-being. The program focuses on “a healthy start in life, healthy food, and healthy active communities.” There are currently fourty-five communities in Ontario participating and the families within these communities are benefiting by learning skills for staying active and eating healthier, gaining support with making healthy choices, and are increasing their community involvement.
Their theme is Run, Jump, Play, Every Day! It is meant to encourage physical activity.
I worked with the Healthy Kids Community Challenge Lambton Partners to create an Activity Journal.
The Activity Journal is a passport to all the Lambton County parks and facilities. The idea is to encourage children and their families to go be active together in their communities and then track their progress in the Activity Journal.
Every one that participates and hands in their participation slip from the Activity Journal by August 17, 2016 gets a chance to win an Ontario Provincial Park Season Pass, Youth Mountain Bikes with helmets, and Fitbits.
Here’s a sneak peek inside the journal at just some of the many places you and your family can run, jump, and play:
