Run, jump, climb and throw! Hundreds of kids and adults participated in the inaugural FitOne Family Field Day on Dec. 22 before the start of the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl football game at Boise State University.
The $24 admission included activities, nutrition education programs and a potato bar lunch at the indoor Caven-Williams Sports Center. Volunteers from St. Luke’s, Boise High School and other organizations helped run stations for kids to try tossing a football, jumping vertically, weaving through cones and more. Families could also learn about making nutritious meal choices in a “Choose My Plate” contest.
About 300 people participated in the event, and winners received a healthy snack recipe flip book.
“It has been super fun. I can’t wait until next year,” said FitOne director Heather Hill, who especially enjoyed watching kids play active games with their parents.
For every FitOne Family Field Day ticket sold, $3 was donated to St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital.
