A SUPER Thank You!
August 26, 2013 | Chicago, IL
Erie’s Health and Leadership Program would like to extend a huge thank you to Goose Island Beer Company, the Associate Board and to YOU, our supporters, for your generosity at the Goose Island Fundraiser. Thanks to you, the program was able to raise $8,000 for expanded learning, supplies and other programmatic needs.
With the school year right around the corner, our Health and Leadership Program is gearing up for a great fall. This year, we are going to be offering more opportunities for children and parent participants to get involved, with two cohorts of Super H, a wellness program with a strong curriculum focused on super foods, exercise and practice of good self-esteem.
Part of personal health is being a leader and our Parent Council will be beginning again in the fall, but our parent leaders have hardly had a chance to rest this summer because of immigration reform. In August, many of them participated in several different types of advocacy efforts, from phone calls to a rally in West Chicago, IL. The new school year will see parents engaged in the continued fight for affordable child care and more comprehensive fiscal reform at the state level.
All in all we are looking forward to a great year for Health and Leadership Programs and cannot wait to be able to help our participants find new and exciting ways to view personal and community health.
