An active child is a healthier, more confident child!
The Junior League of Birmingham is partnering with the Jefferson County School System to take “small steps to end childhood obesity” with a health expo and 1 Mile Fun Run for children 12 years and younger.
JLB’s mobile teaching kitchen, Project Yummy, will be on hand and we’ll have lots of fun activities, including Zumba!
Fun Run runners will receive a REAL finisher’s medal.
In April 2016, we’ll host events at Mortimer Jordan High School and Hueytown High School. Stay tuned for future events.
The project is the culmination of a unique educational program provided to select elementary schools in the Jefferson County school system. It’s designed to educate and motivate our youth to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
