What is Every Kid Healthy Week?
The International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) is working to have Pennsylvania lawmakers officially recognize the week of April 25th – 29th as Every Kid Health Week™ in the state. Every Kid Healthy Week™ is an annual observance highlighting the link between physical activity, good nutrition and health among children and adolescents, and recognizing schools and community partners working to improve kids’ health and wellness.
