Derry Boys & Girls Club kids graduate from NH child obesity prevention program


DERRY - More than 50 kids from the Boys and Girls Club in Derry graduated Friday from the "Keep it Moving" 5-week state program that focuses on preventing childhood obesity.

New Hampshire was chosen as one of two states nationwide to participate in the program designed by New Hampshire Healthy Families, a health insurance company for the state's Medicaid population.

The goal of the program is to encourage children to take part in regular physical activity and develop new healthy habits.

The graduation ceremony and a live performance by two children of H3TV, was held Friday at the Derry Boys and Girls Club.
