Manchester, KY: Manchester Memorial Hospital (MMH) has gifted Clay County Middle School with one thousand dollars’ worth of gym equipment in an effort to help students get active.
Following a ceremony held by Manchester Memorial Hospital’s CEO Erika Skula, Clay County Middle School’s students were presented with several pieces of gym equipment, including twelve basketballs, a portable indoor volleyball net and volleyballs.
“It’s in these early years that students form the healthy habits that stick with them into adulthood. Through our CREATION Health program, we hope to help them cultivate healthy habits like exercise and social interaction,” says Erika Skula, CEO of MMH.
Jeremy Hacker, the Community Outreach Coordinator at MMH, has worked hard to establish a relationship with students at the Middle School over the last year through his Live It Up! sessions, which are based on the principles of CREATION Health.
“This impacts the students in the truest sense of CREATION Health by providing the equipment they need to stay active,” says Jeremy, MMH’s Community Outreach Coordinator.
CREATION Health is a wellness program based on eight biblical principles found in the creation story, and supported by evidence-based science. To find out more about CREATION Health, call 606-598-1095.
