Healthy Start kicks off the school year with excitement by providing a “healthy” back to school bash for the entire family. Our focus is on providing a fun-filled, educational night for children and their parents. The event takes place after school so parents can be involved in this awesome opportunity to learn ways to incorporate healthy lifestyles at home. The event is free to all students and their families at their host school. This exciting and action-packed program addresses the Junior League of Columbia's (JLC) focus of healthy children by providing activities that encourage exercising the mind, body, and spirit through reading, healthy eating, physical activity, and child safety information, as well as helping parents understand the importance of encouraging healthy lifestyles at home and school!
