Our friends at Be Active North Carolina are challenging churches and other community groups to join the fight against childhood obesity by creating organized events where people can get out and play. North Carolina Play Daze is the official name of this statewide campaign to promote physical activity, and your church can show your support by hosting local play events on September 23rd, 24th and 25th.
Some ideas include: holding a potato sack race; making and flying kites; having a water balloon toss; or playing Duck, Duck, Goose. The activities you choose are less important than simply having fun and sending the important message that North Carolina’s faith community cares about the health of our children!
