Centegra Partners with BGCDT to Pilot “Kids In Motion” Program

 

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township and Centegra teamed up to partner on the launch of a pilot fitness program, called “Centegra Kids In Motion”.  The program was designed for youth ages 7 – 13 and focuses on the empowering youth to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Heather Klaus, Wellness Manager at Centegra, spearheaded the program with several staff from Cenegra.  The Centegra team incorporated yoga, group dance and nutrition activities throughout the program.

The pilot program was administered at our Lakewood Elementary Club Unit with a select group of 35 Club members.  The Club members were baseline tested in the areas of food nutrition knowledge, daily activity involvement and relaxation techniques.  90% of Club members that participated in the pilot program reported improved scores, across all categories, after the completion of the program.

Thank you for our partners at Centegra for this fantastic program for our Club members at Lakewood!
