The Coalition for a Healthy Community (CHC) seeks to be an active participant in combating childhood obesity by linking community resources with schools and parents. The CHC also encourages local businesses and government to provide opportunities that allow a healthy environment within our community.

Kent School District CRUZIN' PASSPORT Program

ALL Kent School District elementary aged children with a Cruzin’ Passport that lasts from June 1st – August 31st. The program encourages children to get stamps in their passports by eating Smart (healthy), playing hard (exercising) and Learning about how to become healthy for life.

Kids can earn prizes and a Cruzin’ backpack for those that turn in their passport by September 10th with at least 5 stamps. The school with the highest percentage of passport turned in by September 10th, 2010, will be presented with a $ 1,000.00 check to be used towards PE equipment and/or playground equipment. This year, we’ve added a 2nd prize place winner for $750.00 and a third place winner as well.

Check out www.cruzinpassport.com for more details.


We’d love to have your passion and ambition to help us spread the mission. If you are interested in being part of the CHC, please e-mail Pamela.Kramer@multicare.org to see how you can get involved!
