Children's Hospital & Medical Center and Kohl’s Department Stores are teaming up to make Omaha-area kids healthier.
Kohl’s donated just over $191,800 for the Healthy Kohl’s Kids program, a city-wide initiative aimed at educating children and families about the importance of good nutrition and fitness.
The program includes a website, which features fitness tips, healthy cooking ideas and recipe sharing.
Omaha Mayor Jim Suttle, Gary Perkins, president and CEO of Children’s, Tim Kathol, manager of one area Kohl’s, and several other city officials gathered at Fontenelle Elementary School Tuesday to kick off the program.
As par of the event, the school received 700 jump ropes, enough for its whole student body and staff.
