A virtual program throughout the month of October aims to help Acadiana children and teens become more active and practice healthy habits.
Woman’s Foundation, Inc. has hosted the Kids on the Geaux program for several years through in-person classes. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, this version of the program will be online. The four-week program begins October 5 and includes one evening session each Monday in October. Children and at least one parent must participate in all sessions. There is a $35 fee for the program, which includes learning materials for all four sessions.
