Make a Difference in the Life of a Child

Volunteers Needed to Make a Difference in the Life of a Child in Winter Park and Eatonville through CATCH Healthy Habits!

Do you like working with children? Like working in a team? Then join the Rollins CATCH Healthy Habits, a program where adults age 50 + and children grades K-5 learn together the benefits of healthy eating and exercise. The children and adults have a lot of fun as they learn together how to stay healthy and fit. Volunteers work in teams of six to eight with children in school settings and other youth organizations.

The Rollins Center for Lifelong Learning is the local sponsor of this program. All training and class materials are provided free of charge. CATCH Healthy Habits is funded through a grant from the Winter Park Health Foundation to Rollins College.

The Rollins CATCH Healthy Habits is a wonderful way to improve your health and celebrate healthy living while making a difference in your community with just one hour a week for 8 weeks. This summer classes are at the Winter Park Community Center, Eatonville Boys & Girls Club, and Brookshire Elementary School.

Contact Holly Tanyhill at 407-646-2459 or email htanyhill@rillins.edu

Next training is May 17 & 18 from 1 – 5 pm on the Rollins College campus.

Hungerford Elementary Hosts “A Hero’s Breakfast”

It takes a village to create and sustain a culture of health and wellness within a school.  Schools must partner with community organizations and local businesses to ensure their students and staff are healthy and ready to learn.

Hungerford Elementary has leveraged many community partners to provide the best opportunities possible for their students and staff.  To say thank you to these partners, on March 16, 2016, Hungerford Elementary held “A Hero’s Breakfast” at First Watch in Winter Park.  Attendees included representatives from Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church, the Dairy Council of Florida, Orlando Orthopedic, Winter Park Health Foundation, and volunteers from career day.

Hungerford’s principal, Ms. Letecia Foster, thanked participants for their dedication to Hungerford Elementary and were then treated to a healthy breakfast.  Participants had the opportunity to learn from each other and develop new relationships, an opportunity for future partnerships.

The breakfast was modeled after Fuel Up to Play 60’s A Hero’s Breakfast play.
