Huron County is one of 45 communities in Ontario involved in the Healthy Kids Community Challenge.
It’s all about improving the health of children 12 years and younger. We are working with communities to promote healthy eating and physical activity for children.
We are working with communities because we know that healthy kids live in healthy families, healthy schools and healthy communities.
Huron County community members and leaders from public health, recreation, education, and business are working together on community projects. The goal is to make Huron County a place where health is supported everywhere you go.
You can be a part of making this happen!
For example, you might be interested in a “walking school bus” project, or making free drinking water easy to find in your community.
To learn more about what’s happening in your community and how you can get involved, visit our Facebook page! You can also call the Huron County Health Unit and ask for the Healthy Kids Community Challenge project manager.
Healthy Kids Community Challenge is funded and supported by the Province of Ontario.
