Platte River FitKids is a companion initiative aimed at encouraging children 14 & under to be more physically active. We also aspire to help children learn goal-setting behaviors. Childhood obesity has lifelong negative consequences, both physical and emotional, for our young people. We want families to see an active lifestyle and goal attainment as important family values. We recognize that a culture cannot truly be improved until it is embraced by its children.
The 2019 Platte River FitKids Program will be conducted within the Platte River Fitness Series. Kids 14 & under who complete 10 events of any type or distance will receive a special FitKids award at the 2019 Awards Celebration and free entry into 5 events in the 2020 PRFS. The Kids or Family Mile does count for kids 14 & under.
