Back in May, Covenant Health partnered with the Kohl's Cares program
to bring the Healthy Heroes event to Lubbock. With bounce houses and plenty
of fun games, area children and their parents were exposed to a variety
of education items.
The "Healthy Heroes" program provides education and awareness
to the local community on health and wellness. The program incorporates
the "5-2-1-0" initiative, which recommends children eat five
servings of fruits and vegetables; spend no more than two hours watching
television, playing video games or surfing the internet; get at least
one hour of active play; and drink zero sugar-sweetened beverages each day.
The Kohl's Healthy Heroes program educates and provide awareness to
the community, including parents, families, and children of all ages,
on health and wellness. This education and awareness will provide easily
learned behavior change techniques regarding health and wellness that
can be incorporated into everyday living. Overall, a better educated pediatric
Lubbock will emerge. The program provides education and awareness to the
local community on health and wellness through events and education.
The Kohl's Cares program funded Healthy Heroes in coordination with
Covenant Children's. Kohl's supports more than 160 children's
hospitals nationwide through the Kohl's Cares® cause merchandise
program which has raised more than $231 million for children's health
and education initiatives.
