Looking for fun ideas to do with your kids this summer? The Physical Activity and Nutrition Coalition from Healthiest Manitowoc County (HMC) has a program for you! Strive for 25 is a summer initiative geared towards getting kids active, thinking about making a positive impact in their communities, and getting those picky eaters to try new, healthy foods. Thanks to the supportive organizations in our community, kids can earn amazing prizes including, day passes and discounts for many of Manitowoc Counties amazing businesses, kids cook books, toys, water bottles, and more! Here’s how it works.
Strive for 25 Miles
For every 25 miles (up to 75) kids can earn a prize! Keep track of how many miles of physical activity your kiddos did each day by crossing off one mile at a time on our tracker. The goal is to be active and have fun, so mileage doesn’t need to be precise! Here are some estimates that may be helpful: 15 city blocks= 1 mile, 1 kids soccer game= 1.5 miles, 3000 steps= 1 mile.
Strive for 25 Good Deeds
It is never too early to start thinking about servicing your community. So what constitutes as a good deed? A good deed is simple, a good deed is something which helps another person, animal, or society as a whole. Some examples: clean up trash at the beach, give your neighbor a flower, open the door for someone, help someone carry something, or volunteer somewhere!
Strive for 25 Fruits & Vegetables
Try to find as many fruits and veggies as you can! We encourage everyone to be adventurous and hopefully discover a new favorite food! The local farmer’s market is a great place to start!
