Getting outside and moving can make a big difference for the health of our children. Especially if they can get in the habit early in their life. To help encourage the kids Uintah Basin Healthcare partnered with Centennial Elementary to have a Move-a-thon. The Move-a-thon is a healthy fundraiser that helps get kids moving by collecting pledges for each 30 minutes they completed during September 27th through October 6th. “Developing these partnerships with local schools is important to Uintah Basin Healthcare,” shares UBH Director of Marketing Maigen Zobell. “As a local, non-profit hospital, we are invested in population health and doing what we can to keep our communities healthy.” The kids were able to raise $10,000 dollars which received a 10% monetary match from Uintah Basin Healthcare to add $1,000 more to the total. Each class recognized their top winner while each grade awarded the top three fund raisers with the PTA providing scooters, fit bits and balls to the third and second place winners. The first place winners received a bike and helmet that was provided by UBH. The first place winners (starting from Kindergarten and going to 5th grade) were Nicole Chatwin, Tyson Huber, Rigdon Rhoten, Tuf Jenkins, Landon Holding and Kenzie Tryon.
