A new community partnership aims to help kids and families with weight problems.
Strong Kids is a program that means to increase physical activity and promote healthy eating.
The program begins September 9th. Families that are interested in the program need to pick up a referral form from YMCA. A school nurse or family doctor will have to fill the form out.
The program will last for 10 weeks, and parents are expected to attend weekly meetings every Tuesday. If a family attends all 10 weeks, they get a YMCA membership good for one year.
