Home Run to Health Program

The Kansas City Royals joined Sun Life Financial to offer a program called Home Run to Health, a 4 week program to promote healthy lifestyle and living. Students from Eastwood Hills Elementary, located near Kauffman Stadium in the Raytown School District, received a handbook of workouts and healthy habits titled Home Run to Health, powered by Sun Life Financial at an assembly in April. The four-week program challenges the kids to learn and use healthy habits and stay active.

At the conclusion of the challenge, Royals Pitcher Brad Keller, former Royals Outfielder Les Norman and Royals Athletic Trainers Dylan Wilson and Sean Bardennett visited the students to congratulate them on completing the Home Run to Health program. Participants received weekly incentives for completing each week of the program and were back to a game during the 2018 season.

The Royals & Sun Life Financial encourage kids to take the 4-week Home Run to Health challenge this summer. Use the Home Run to Health worksheets to track your progress.
