Racing For Better Health

Posted on: March 27th, 2012 by joanna-maiolo

I am excited to announce BNC’s participation at the Frank Shorter RACE4Kids’ Health 5K race on April 15th, 2012, put together by Healthy Learning Paths. This organization shares many of BNC’s philosophies of integrating health and wellness and teaching healthy lifestyle choices to our students.

Healthy Learning Paths empowers children by teaching wellness strategies for success in health, learning, and life. They envision communities where integrated health and educational tools are broadly accessible to families of all backgrounds and income levels. These tools enable parents to effectively coach children as they navigate obstacles to achievement and good health. The final outcome is children acquire a natural and lasting determination to reach their full potentials.

Healthy Learning Paths is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

The Frank Shorter RACE4Kids' Health 5K honors Olympic Gold Medalist, Frank Shorter for his commitment to children's wellness and learning.  Proceeds benefit Healthy Learning Paths, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit partnership of medical and educational professionals, who recognize and teach the critical connections between health and learning for children's success. Your participation brings our Be Well, Learn Well© school wellness and educational community programs to more Colorado children.  Children must be well, so they can learn well.

Don't miss the Healthy Kids' Expo at the race where you'll find many resources, products and fun activities for kids. Also, be sure to stop by the BNC booth to find out more about our approach to healthy living!
