Sonia Ramirez is a Recreation Coordinator at the Parks and Recreation Department in Huntington Park. And together she and her community are working to turn their city into an environment that gives their young people every chance to develop healthy lifestyles.
Press play and let Sonia show you.
15% of our nation’s youth are involved in afterschool programs.
Combined with the many other out-of-school time settings, this percentage shows a need to make these environments as healthy as possible for all the children they empower to learn, play, and create.
Thank you Sonia and the City of Huntington Park for making health a priority.
