Event attendees experienced cooking demonstrations on nutritious after-school dinners and snacks. They also learned from nutrition education exhibits and participate in fitness fun for all ages.
“We are simply ecstatic about the show of support for this most worthy event,” states Vanetta Keyes, C.H.O.I.C.E.S.’ Founder and Executive Director. “It was a beautiful display of the power of collaboration, and we sincerely appreciate the support of The Fulton DeKalb Hospital Authority and Commissioner Larry Johnson. The event would not have been as meaningful and impactful as it was without their support, along with that of our partners, volunteers and donors.”
As planned, this event helped to reinforce DeKalb County’s commitment made in year 2011 to become a Let’s Move! County under the national Let’s Move! Initiative.
