Rally Health and actor and comedian Kevin Hart visited Children’s National on Aug. 7 to show children that making healthy choices can be fun and easy. The event was filled with interactive activities, including arts and crafts, dance classes, and demonstrations.
"I want to thank Rally Health and Kevin Hart for their generosity and enthusiasm," said Kurt Newman, MD, President and CEO of Children’s National Health System. "Rally Health and Kevin share Children's commitment and vision to improving children’s health in our community and promoting healthy living."
Earlier in the day, Children’s National employees, families, and friends enjoyed the spontaneous 5K hosted by Kevin Hart and Rally for Health located at the Georgetown Waterfront.
“Adopting healthy habits can be tough, especially when we are asking people to change their routines to exercise more and eat better. We want to teach kids healthy behaviors in a fun and interactive way, and hope they will continue these habits throughout their lives,” said Grant Verstandig, Rally Health’s founder and chief executive officer. “Children’s National is renowned for its excellence and innovation in pediatric care. We are thrilled to be a part of and support its mission of bettering the overall health of this community, especially since we started our company in Washington, D.C.”
