Healthy Kids Community Challenge (HKCC) is a province-wide initiative funded by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC) intended to create sustainable improvements for children and youth in three theme areas: healthy eating, healthy physical activity and healthy lifestyle for children and youth. The target age for this Provincial initiative is 12 years and under.
London is one of 45 municipalities receiving HKCC funding and will use the funds to enhance the impact of London’s Child and Youth Network (CYN), whose goals and aims closely align with the objectives of HKCC. The funding will be used to facilitate new, and enhance existing, projects/initiatives of the CYN that meet MOHLTC’s eligibility criteria including addressing Ministry mandated themes which change every nine months.
The first theme was Run. Jump. Play and the second theme was Water Does Wonders.
