Akron Children’s Hospital and Kohl’s Cares Community Giving Program

Damascus Elementary is fortunate to collaborate with Akron Children’s Hospital and Kohl’s Cares Community Giving Program.  We recently received a grant for a program that will offer noncompetitive activities to promote health, fitness, good eating habits, and safe and gradual weight loss. The program, intended to assist and encourage children from kindergarten through age 18, has been successful at the Akron Children’s main campus. These issues are important because the childhood obesity rate has skyrocketed nationwide.  The program will be used throughout physical education classes at Damascus Elementary School.  Damascus Elementary would like to “Thank” Akron Children’s Hospital and the Kohl’s Cares Program.  Melody Case, Wellness Specialist at Akron Children’s Hospital of Mahoning Valley states, “We are very proud to be able to offer this program at Damascus Elementary and we thank Mr. Tucker and Mr. Bowen for allowing for this collaboration, and for all your support now, and in the future.”
