Every Kid Healthy Week will look much different this year
Experiencing it through a global pandemic, schools across the globe will still find plenty of ways to make this week both exciting and interactive!
April 20th through April 24th symbolizes this special week, where kids across the nation and globe, are encouraged to get moving and get active with their families in pursuit of both physical and emotional health, which is essential for our CHILDREN and OURSELVES!
If you are reading this, you are alive, praise the Lord!
You are still alive and your heart is still beating in your chest. Because of this, I know in my heart for certain that you have a purpose AND even if you feel like you aren’t sure what that is, that’s okay! You are here for a plan that is so divine and set on fire to your specific interests, that it’s essential to remember that even during this pandemic, you my friend, are important beyond belief, whether this “storm” feels like a slight rainstorm, or whether you’re in the midst of a hurricane. I am thinking of you and sending you the highest vibrations to you, your family, and your children (fur children included)!

The Mission of the National Holiday
Every Kid Healthy Week is to remind the nation of the importance of being cognizant of not only the children in our life’s physical health and well-being, but also, arguably even more important is their social, emotional, and psychological well-being. We will provide a daily post with more information on activities and how to celebrate this wonderful day for kids. Share with your friends. Create a virtual play date or if you can join friends at a park within the guidelines of your individual city.
Follow each day’s theme and use the hashtag #EveryKidHealthyWeek to raise awareness and let the world know how you are celebrating!
