A program is coming to Washington for youth to promote physical activity.  The VERB Summer Scorecard Program operates on a basis similar to library-based reading programs where children are encouraged to exercise over the summer.  Washington Y Program Director Josh Riffel says with this program, children aged 9 to 13 will be given a scorecard with boxes that will show healthy activities.

He says throughout the summer, children will have an opportunity to earn prizes upon completing the scorecards.  For more information on the VERB Summer Scorecard Program, contact Josh Riffel at the Washington Y.
