"Live Healthy, Lead Healthy" in Ramona, CA

In California, The Ramona Sentinel reports that members of Ramona Girl Scout Troop 8009 participated in the 4th annual Girl Scout New Day 5K Fun Run at Mission Bay Park recently. The event’s focus was to raise awareness about the importance of a balanced, healthy lifestyle for girls of all ages.
After the run, the girls were encouraged to write their personal resolutions on the “New Day Resolution Wall.” Written on that wall were comments such as becoming more active, being more positive, promising to walk their dogs more frequently, and being nicer to their siblings. Money raised from the event will help fund Girl Scouts’ “Live Healthy, Lead Healthy” programs. Are there similar activities in your area to get youth involved in healthy living initiatives?
