About Healthy Kids Community Challenge Uxbridge
The Township of Uxbridge is one of 45 communities in Ontario taking part in the Healthy Kids Community Challenge. The Healthy Kids Community Challenge unites communities with a common goal: promoting children’s health through physical activity and healthy eating.
Every nine months, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care will launch a new theme related to physical activity or healthy eating. We will be offering new and exciting local projects, events and initiatives to promote healthy and active communities.
The first theme is Run. Jump. Play. Every Day. This theme encourages physical activity through a mix of active play, sport, active transportation and structured activities.
Funding for this initiative has been provided by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care under the Healthy Kids Community Challenge
