Andrew Luck Promotes Healthy Life Choices at UE Kids Camp
Indianapolis Colts QB, Andrew Luck made a stop at the University of Evansville Monday to have some fun with a group of kids and promote healthy life choices during a Change the Play camp with Riley Children's Hospital.
Monday's camp was the second of three scheduled stops across the state, and is designed to encourage kids to put down the video game controllers, smartphones, and tablets, and get active for at least 60 minutes a day while also stressing the importance of eating a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, grains, and dairy.
Over 200 kids between the ages of five and 13 took part in Monday's camp which featured a variety of activities including jumping rope, running in place, and even catching a pass or two from the Colts franchise player.
The camps are a small part of the larger Change the Play initiative. Parents can visit the Riley Children's Hospital website and sign their kids up for the program anytime. Members will receive a membership kit which features a monthly theme and activities to help them be more active.
