Help Children to be Active One Hour a Day!

Did you know... being active one hour a day can help your child:

  • Improve his or her health
  • Do better in school
  • Improve his or her fitness
  • Grow stronger
  • Have fun playing with friends
  • Feel happier
  • Maintain a healthy body weight
  • Improve his or her self-confidence
  • Learn new skills

Active Jack was first introduced to participants at local daycamps at Richmond's community centres in the summer of 2012, encouraging kids to be active at least one hour a day. 

This year, Active Jack will come to life at events throughout the summer. Check back for listings of where you can expect to meet Active Jack in real life!
