You’re never too young to make healthy choices!
You’re never too young to learn how to make healthier choices, and the Foundation helps children in our area get the tools they need to make those choices. We do that through supporting programs like Girls on the Run, in-class educational sessions, family programming and scholarships for students looking to pursue careers in the wellness professions.
The Lake Chelan Health Wellness Foundation looks forward to partnering with Chelan Valley Health in 2023 to bring back to the valley’s children their favorite mascot………MAX!
Girls on the Run
As part of its mission and commitment to wellness initiatives, LCHWF has helped to support Girls on the Run of Columbia Valley for many years. LCHWF is a sponsor of the Chelan area chapter of this national organization.
The after-school program for 3rd- 8th grade girls incorporates running to facilitate lessons in self-esteem, positive decision-making, teamwork and involvement in one’s community, encouraging healthy habits for life. The goal of the program is to give girls the tools to become strong, confident members of their community who make choices that positively affect their social, physical and mental selves, and to make meaningful connections with others. At each lesson, the girls run (skip, hop, walk) and train for a 5K which they complete at the end of the program. This year the 5K will be on Saturday, June 3rd at Pybus Market.
