Dear Parents & Kids:
Thanks so much for your interest in Healthy Kids 2011.
While we are very proud of the fact we have introduced the sport of triathlon to more than 1,200 children during our first 2 years, we noticed a group of kids missing from our efforts. We noticed that most of the kids who participated in the First Coast Kids Triathlon were already part of another team or played a number of other sports. This was just another activity for them to try. However, we were not successful at attracting kids who were not already active.
This became a challenge we wanted to address, and it has developed as the central focus of Healthy Kids 2011. This is a pioneering effort to help show a select group of kids (and their families) what it takes to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. By combining the resources of some of the most talented and dedicated professionals on the First Coast, it provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for 20 kids, ages 10 to 14, to change their lives.
Developing the proper knowledge and habits will take a serious commitment. Our 26-Week Program requires participation in weekly meetings and a commitment to make good choices in regards to exercise and nutrition every day. It culminates with having each kid successfully complete their first triathlon on May 1, 2011. However, this is one situation where the journey is just as important as the destination. Incredible resources will be provided – at no cost – to every child, and every family will have the opportunity to interact with some of the top pediatricians, nutritionists, trainers, athletes and other professionals in our community.
If you are interested, there is no time to waste. Please take a few minutes to review the application. If you have questions, contact us at your earliest convenience. Otherwise, we hope you take the time to complete the application and to submit it before October 27, 2010. There is no time better than the present to start down the path to a healthy and active life, and we look forward to having you join us for this exciting journey.
