Combining fun activities for the entire family with nutritional ways of improving your health is a natural. Less than 50 participated the first year. Close to 1,000 registered in 2011! Family Field Day is a great start to the Kiddin’ Around program, a summer-long activity program for kids and their parents.
Family Field day, presented by Subway Restaurants, brings three great organizations together to help promote nutrition, fitness and ways of playing together as a family. The CWU Dietetic Internship, FitKids USA, and the Yakima Greenway Foundation provide several fun events that tie nutrition and healthy lifestyles with fitness and well being. There are many activities like kayaking, tennis, hula hoops, jump rope, soccer, an excellent obstacle course and an unbelievable game of tag. This event is for all ages and we encourage families to come together so they can learn and play together.
Family Field Day is a great day to practice the kayak for the Junior Gap2Gap!
The Yakima Greenway Foundation would like to thank Kathleen Goyette and Tom Kelleher from Fit Kids USA and Linda Cashman from the CWU Dietetic Interns for their endless energy and amazing creativity to help make and continue our Family Field Day Event. The event just keeps getting bigger and better every year. If you have not been to a FFD event, you gotta check it out, it is all about fun.
Thank you to all Sponsors and Volunteers for 2014 Family Field Day!
