On Saturday, May 10th, Covenant Children’s teamed up with Kohl’s to put on a heroic event for kids and families in the Lubbock community and surrounding areas.

Families were invited to the Kohl’s parking lot where a festival of fun and education awaited them. The theme of the event was how to be a “Healthy Hero.” The event was such a hit, that even Superman, Wonder Woman, Captain America, and Green Lantern stopped by to have a little fun and sign a few autographs. There were multiple booths set up with exciting games for the kids to play that also taught them what a healthy lifestyle looks like. While they were busy throwing footballs, fishing for treats, and hoola-hooping, these kids and their families were also walking away with knowledge about the importance of incorporating healthy eating and drinking with an active lifestyle so that these SUPER KIDS could defeat the bad guys, Diabetes and Heart Disease.
\After the kids stopped by each station to play a game and get a fun take-away, they ran over to get their tickets to the more than popular bounce houses awaiting them at the end of the journey. What a great way to spend a Saturday!
