Welcome to the Healthy Kids Ajax website. The Town of Ajax is proud to be one of 45 communities in Ontario selected to participate in the Healthy Kids Community Challenge.
Targeted at children 12 years and under, the challenge unites communities with a common goal: promoting children’s health through physical activity and healthy eating.
With the support of a $1 million dollar provincial grant from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, the Town and community partners are implementing the program over the next four years.
To ignite the community, we are calling on Ajax families to have an active and healthy 2016 and take the Healthy Kids Ajax Pledge. The first 100 families to take the pledge will be entered to win a Healthy Kids Ajax Family Prize Pack. Take the pledge now!
We’re also encouraging parents to take the Healthy Kids Survey. Your feedback will help identify opportunities and needs in Ajax that will support a healthy and active lifestyle for your kid(s).
Don’t miss the official Healthy Kids Community launch at Winterfest February 15, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Audley Recreation Centre. Visit the Healthy Kids Squad to take the pledge, play activities and win prizes!
Make sure you after you take the pledge you download the Healthy Kids Infographic to help you stay active and healthy!
