is a proud partner and member of the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation (HWCF), an organization flipping the Ides of March into a moment of excitement for tens of thousands of schools nationwide this month. We’ve helped support their efforts to battle childhood obesity and you can too! Now until March 15th simply enter your favorite local elementary school into their “Healthy Playground Makeover Sweepstakes.” Two schools will win $30,000 plus a new playground.
A fitting description for 31 days of busy!
Beware the Ides of March! We often hear this ancient warning that we ought to fear what the gods have in store in the middle of this month. Or, “March goes in like a lion and out like a lamb,” a reminder that the weather can be wildly unpredictable as winter gives way to spring. Neither of these Marchy expressions seemed to fit the mood around here. Like many non-profit and grass roots organizations, the pace is more akin to March Madness! With each new partnership gained or hands-on project completed, we can relate to the Cinderella story—as a team is vying for a spot to shine in the next bracket.
join us as we leap into March Madness by helping the children in your network connect with the concept of energy balance. Check out the free resources from HWCF at TogetherCounts.com. Find wellness downloadables like tips for parents, free curriculum for educators and even a kit for school nurses. Like the Together Counts™ program on Facebook for news, updates and even a shout out about our organization when we shine!
