Nutrition for Life Event on November 3, 2012

As part of WIC’s Nutrition for Life Campaign with the New England Patriots, WIC hosted a special event on Saturday November 3, at the Kroc Center to highlight our Fit WIC initiative to get families and kids to eat healthy and stay physically active. Over 135 kids participated in 10 different activities including basketball, jump rope, limbo, hockey, egg balance, bowling, run course, bean bag toss, and, of course, a Fit WIC and football activity.

Joining Ron Benham, Bureau of Family Health and Nutrition Director, was former Patriots Player Jermaine Wiggins, who hosted the event, along with current Patriots players, Matthew Slater and Justin Francis. The event was a huge success and was featured on Fox 25 News. WIC is especially close to Jermaine’s heart, because he not only participated in WIC as a child but also turned to WIC for help when raising his own kids.
