Representatives from Kohl’s Department Stores will present Akron Children’s Hospital with a $292,979 check to benefit Kohl’s Community Youth Fitness Program. The check presentation will occur during an educational fair, which will feature family-friendly activities, giveaways and health information, at Pinnacle Sports in Medina.
Valerie Holbrook, MS, AT, CSCS, outreach coordinator from Akron Children’s Hospital Center for Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, will be accepting the donation on behalf of the hospital.
The Future Fitness Club, made possible by Kohl’s Community Youth Fitness and Akron Children’s Hospital, is an effective, low-cost group weight management program for children eight to13 years that promotes gradual and safe weight loss.
Participants learn healthy eating and fitness habits as they participate in games and other fun, non-competitive activities, such as obstacle courses, relay races, circuit strength/flexibility training and more.
Since 2000, Kohl’s has donated more than $3 million to Akron Children’s Hospital for the Future Fitness Club and other programs through their Kohl’s Cares® cause merchandise program.
The clubs are held at neighborhood recreation centers and cost $30 for an eight-week session. For more information, please visit akronchildrens.org/kohlsfitness
