Are you tough enough to be a gladiator? Are you fast enough to be a gladiator? Do you have the heart and desire to do your best? Do you have what it takes to be a KID GLADIATOR? If so, then come on out to the Davenport Public Library – Fairmount Street (3000 N. Fairmount Street) to see if you have what it takes. This unique outdoors program will be held on Saturday, September 27, from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm, and will feature an inflatable obstacle course, with a few surprises along the way. Each child will be timed for a chance to win great prizes. All children who complete the obstacle course will receive a free jump rope and a participation ribbon. The Library is bringing this event to the community as part of the “Go Healthy Challenge,” a partnership with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, the American Heart Association, and the William J. Clinton Foundation. “Kid Gladiators” is also made possible by local sponsor, QC Family Focus. Registration is not required for this free event. For more information, visit www.davenportlibrary.com, or call 563-888-3371.
The “Go Healthy Challenge” is an initiative that is rallying parents and educators across America to take action and help children become a healthier generation. The Library is doing its part by offering this fun and free kickoff event, followed by additional activity-based programs throughout the year, such as Kid Yoga. The Library can also help by providing print and online resources for parents and children to educate them about fitness and nutrition. Plan to pick up some informative brochures next time you visit the Library.
