Healthy Choices, Healthy Children

At the heart of the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation mission to help youth realize their potential is the Healthy Choices, Healthy Children program. Through partnerships with community based organizations nationwide, the Foundation uses programs like Healthy Choices, Healthy Children to engage mentors and coaches with youth while stimulating dialogue. Through this dialogue, youth engage with their peers to learn important life skills through sports and activities. Using an engaging and interactive format, Healthy Choices, Healthy Children seeks to help youth understand vital life lessons needed to display a positive, productive, and healthy lifestyle. The program is centered on the teachings of Cal, Sr. − values and traits that helped Cal and Bill achieve their heights of success, on and off the field.

Campers show off the results of their healthy choices.
