Have a ball! Children promoting physical activity


Wilson & Hartwell, ages 7 & 9, are taking action in trying to reduce childhood obesity in their state. Mississippi is known for having some of the worst childhood obesity statistics in the country.

Their idea is simple. Give every elementary age child in the state a ball.

Research has shown that giving children consumable equipment will endorse moment and physical activity.

They started their mission in January and have already donated over 3500 balls!

Peaceful Playgrounds supports physical activity and has equipment packages that you can purchase for school recess or physical education class. Now let's all get moving!!
