HealthyPlay! United Sports
In partnership with the Citadel and the City of Charleston the first-ever HealthyPlay! United Sports program was successfully organized summer 2016 at Forest Park Playground in Charleston, SC.
One day each week for 6 weeks participants learn about a different sport, practice teamwork and display sportsmanship skills. Ranging from soccer to swimming to kickball each week presents an opportunity to learn about the benefits of being active.
After an hour of sports activity everyone gathers for a healthy meal. Here they learn about preparing a variety of foods and the importance of nutrition. From salads to fruits and vegetables to whole grains the emphasis is on simple meals that provide the healthy nutrients our body needs.
