We are beyond excited to announce that over the summer, we impacted over 3,500 kids through our Summer InSports Days. We teamed up with Chaska/Chan, Bloomington, Osseo and Hopkins School Districts for fourteen different InSports Days. We had many sunny days filled with lacrosse, soccer, capture the football, healthy eating, and other activities to promote a happy, active lifestyle!
By partnering with summer school programs to provide free sports clinics throughout the summer, all of these kids got an opportunity to get IN the game. Not only did these kids try new sports, but they also got the opportunity to learn the importance of staying active, healthy eating, and goal setting. In order to encourage them to become confident and successful leaders of their community. We look forward to heading back out next summer!
On August 1st, we kicked off our InSports Days with the Hopkins School District at Tanglen Elementary School and the following week, our InSports crew went out to Gatewood Elementary! Although Hopkins was our smallest group with about 70 kids attending both sessions, we got them excited and active with four different activities!
The kids got the opportunity to play lacrosse, soccer and a PE game called Lord of the Rings ran by Active Solutions. They also got to attend a healthy eating session put on by Twin Cities Orthopedics and Training HAUS. As the day wrapped up, all kiddos were able to take home a TCO stress football as well as a healthy snack pack from Matter.
We are so thankful to be able to give kids the opportunity to play sports and learn the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. A big THANK YOU to our partnerships and Hopkins School District for being important parts of making a difference in these kids lives!
