On Saturday May 4th, the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer will be in attendance for the 5th annual Kids in the Kitchen event from 11-3 in the Walker Pavilion in Coolidge Park. Kids in the Kitchen is a fun and educational event that teaches children about healthy eating habits, exercise, and other important lifestyle choices.
The Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer will be educating the public their Healthy Lifestyle Education Division, Fueling Potential: Racing to Win. Fuelling Potential: Racing to Win is designed to equip families with the knowledge necessary to make healthy lifestyle choices and reduce their lifetime risk of cancer.
Children will be invited to make sun safety bracelets, an interactive way for children and their parents to practice sun safety.
“The Healthy Lifestyle Division addresses four key risk factors that contribute to 65% of all adult cancer diagnosis,” says Stacy Durham, Family Service Coordinator for the Austin Hatcher Foundation. “The four risk factors addressed are: nutrition, tobacco prevention, exercise and sun safety (skin cancer prevention). The “Fueling Potential: Racing to Win” program which teaches children in grades K-5 to imagine their bodies as a race car and provides four interactive teaching stations.” “ We hope the families see the importance of sun protection and hope the children will continue to wear their bracelets throughout the summer.”
There will be samples, giveaways and prizes! Admission is free. All are welcome.
