Live Healthy Iowa Kids is excited to once again be joining forces with the Healthiest State Initiative, to continue our message of healthy and active kids in Iowa. We are partnering to promote physical activity on Oct. 3 by encouraging Iowa schools and youth organizations to get active, as part of the annual Healthiest State Walk.
Go the Distance May highlights the importance of physical activity in a healthy lifestyle; encouraging schools and youth organizations to engage students in 30-minutes of continuous activity.
This FREE event celebrating active and healthy kids in Iowa can take place any day from May 1-31, 2018.
The Live Healthy Iowa Kids Track Championships event was founded in 2015 to continue on the tradition of the Hershey® Track and Field Games in Iowa. Like its predecessor, the Live Healthy Iowa Kids Track Championships is a free, state wide event that requires no special equipment to participate. Partnering with parks and recreation departments and school districts throughout the state, local meets are hosted all around Iowa, giving participants a chance to compete in their hometowns. Local meet champions will have the opportunity to participate in the state meet held in Marshalltown.
