Healthy Kids Foundation
Wests established the Healthy Kids Foundation in 2006 with the aim of financially contributing to assist local children with making better choices. This ranges from supporting High Schools with better lifestyle choices of canteen food to physical sporting activities. In addition the opportunity to encourage children to play weekend sport by assisting with costs such as insurances creates more affordable opportunities to participate in numerous sports. In brief the charter of the foundation:
The Foundation’s objectives, include:
- Providing education directly to children suffering from obesity, including information on dietary issues and healthy lifestyle choices;
- Providing information to schools and canteens to raise local community awareness of obesity in children;
- Engaging in programs and activities to encourage, motivate and enable obese children to lose weight by making healthier food choices and engaging in daily physical activity;
- Encouraging and supporting canteens that promote the availability of a variety of low-fat, high-fibre foods;
- Promoting policies in the local community that provide children with obesity with opportunities to engage in sport and other physical activities, including facilitating participation by means of payment of sports accident insurance and first aid for participants and subsidising costs of participation in a range of sports; and
- Any ancillary activities that are consistent with promoting healthy kids in the Macarthur region.
Wests Leagues are very committed to the cause of the Foundation and in turn supporting the community.
