Addison
 Addison - One of our Talent scholarship recipients
 

 
"Addison is an 8 year old gymnast from Marquette, Michigan. She is a very talented gymnast. She has always been the child who is always upside down trying some new skill. She has found her passion and place in life with gymnastics. She has recently been invited on the competitive team. Without help from DFF this would not be financially possible for our family. Addison spends many hours in the gym and is very dedicated to this sport. She recently lost her grandma and the gym is where she can be herself and not feel sad. She would spend all day at the gym if we let her. She has a true passion for gymnastics and we cannot thank DFF enough for the help to allow her to continue on with her passion! "

Get Active this Summer!


According to the   U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, children now spend more than seven and a half hours a day in front of a screen (e.g., TV, videogames, computer). These are shocking statistics. 

Here are a few ideas on how your children can stay active and fit this summer:
  • Limit your children's television viewing to only about two hours a day. Tell them to do jumping jacks during commercials. (Make it a game or a contest.) 
  • Instead of family movie night, try: taking a family walk or playing catch or frisbee or shoot some baskets.
  • Enroll your kids in summer camp or just set a time each day for when they should go outside and play.
  • Keep a stash of balls, racquets, jump ropes, hula hoops available to guarantee your kids will always find something to do.
  • Other ways to stay active: skateboarding, rollerblading, bicycle riding, playing in the sprinkler, hide and seek or a game of tag.
Get outside and PLAY this Summer!
