TAKE 10 Challenge

Irving HIPPY families and staff at a TAKE 10 CHALLENGE event

Irving HIPPY in the Irving Independent School District recently participated in a health and fitness challenge. Once again, this initiative demonstrates how our HIPPY sites add on programming to the core of the HIPPY model, based on local partnerships and needs in the community. 

Parents in Irving were challenged to do at least 10 minutes of exercise daily, and nutrition and fitness classes for 12 weeks. They tracked their progress and the top 3 families were awarded prizes such as gift cards and Y-memberships. All families won in a way, because all of them were provided information and experiences that can have lifeline positive effects on their health and well being. 

You can view a slide show of pictures of this initiative here. Thanks HIPPY Irving and program partners for making our Irving community a healthier place!
