The Florida Department of Health in Palm Beach held an appreciation breakfast to honor all sponsors, donors and supporters of the 4th annual KidsFit Jam-a-thon to fight childhood obesity. The breakfast was held at the 2015 Children's Services Council, Palm Beach County, 2300 High Ridge Road, Boynton Beach with 20 people in attendance.
The Jam-a-thon event was held on July 31, 2015, and featured presentations by local health and wellness advocates, and incorporated dance fitness and hands-on activities in an effort to educate youth about health and exercise. 1,410 participant learned about and practiced Yoga, Zumba, and experienced a martial arts demonstration. LaGranja Peruvian Restaurants and Digital Vibez, a Non-Profit Organization, joined together to sponsor the event.
In her invitations to the appreciation breakfast, Quinetta C. Hayes, Healthy Communities Consultant, Florida Department of Health, Palm Beach, said of the event, “We understand that it’s just a day, but we are able to impact close to about 1500 or more youth every year with a day of health education, fun activities, physical activity, healthy snacks, water, giveaways and nutrition education. We realize that it truly does take a village to help raise and steer our youngest residents in the adoption of such choices, and none of our efforts would have been made possible if it weren’t for all of you!”
