Nearly 100 kids came out last night to celebrate their new status as Champions of Health in Kansas City. We’d like to thank them and their teachers for their hard work to bring healthy changes to their communities.
Stony Point North in the Kansas City, Kansas Public School district won the grand prize and took home a total of $2,500. Congratulations, kids!
In the crowd that night were a number of people who offered to help the students reach their goals. Representatives from Fuel Up to Play 60 and Kansas City Community Gardens offered resources and some generous audience members even offered cash donations.
Two Girl Scout troops were recognized as Community Champions of Health for their efforts to reshape their communities.
Special thanks go to our volunteer photo/video crew: Phil Peterson, Scott Gibbons and Steve Wilson for capturing the excitement!
