An after-school program designed to teach kids about how to grow up with a healthy attitude about food and exercise gets a boost Wednesday (3/4).
Kohl's presented the University of Virginia Fitness Clinic with nearly $28,000 in front of kids at Crozet Elementary School--kids who will soon be able to make use of the donation.
UVA will use the money to buy teaching tools for the sessions where kids learn about nutritional food charts and much more.
"The kids have a lot of fun with our program," says Angie Hasemann, Dietician with the UVA Children's Clinic."They really enjoy what we do, and they actually learn a lot from it--things they can take home and hopefully try to teach their parents."
The "Growing Up Healthy" Program has been going on since 2006.
UVA has hosted sessions at various Albemarle County Elementary Schools including Crozet Elementary and Hollymead Elementary School.
