I’m not sure what I love most about this program:
the healthy food challenge
the chance to cross a finish line
Participating children receive a t-shirt, a medal upon crossing the finish line, a certificate, a bag of goodies, and most of all – the confidence that they can attain what seems like an unreachable goal.
In conjunction with the Kids of Steel Program is the Steel Taste Program. For this, children taste 60 of 100 healthy foods and mark it off on a checklist. It’s perfect for picky eaters! (My kids will do anything for a check on a chart.) Selah had her first salad tonight with delight! She was so proud. (As was her momma.)
If you are local and end up doing this, let me know. Would love to go on training runs together!
