Ives’ Health & Fitness Boot Camp Scheduled for Aug 14

More than 600 children attended Ives' 2014 Health & Fitness
Boot Camp at Cantigney Park in Wheaton.
Representative Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton) invites families with children ages 7-12 to participate in her third annual Kids’ Health & Fitness Boot Camp, which will be held this week on Friday, August 14 at Cantigny Park in Wheaton.

The free camp will take place from 9:00 a.m. until noon, and the park is located at 1S151 Winfield Road in Wheaton. Children must be accompanied by an adult, and a registration form must be completed upon arrival at the camp.

“It is very important that children establish a routine that includes regular exercise at a young age,” said Ives. “Setting these good habits early often leads to healthy habits that extend into adulthood.”

Participants will take part in a variety of fun, physical activities, including an FTX Crossfit obstacle course, a climbing wall, a National Guard fitness test, a scavenger hunt, a one-mile challenge run through the park and aerobics with music. There will also be healthy snacks and prizes available for participants.

“This event seems to grow in popularity every summer, and I’m expecting a great turnout on Friday,” Ives said. “I hope families from all over the 42nd legislative district come out for this fun fitness event.”
