The Green Bay Packers will once again host 'Project LEAP!' (Lambeau's Exercise and Activity Playground) on March 5, 2005, in the Lambeau Field Atrium.
The event, for children 4-and-older, is free to the public and focuses on getting kids out of the house to enjoy some non-strenuous physical activity. Inflatable units, a mini-golf course and climbing walls are planned.
"In the past few years, child obesity has become more and more of a concern," said Cathy Dworak, manager of community relations for the Packers. "We felt it was important to have an event that provided more physical opportunities as opposed to just entertainment."
'Project LEAP!' is one of four annual free community events the Green Bay Packers host in the Lambeau Field Atrium each year.
"The thing that I love about this event is that the families are having a great time together," said Bob Harlan, the Packers' president and CEO. "I think 'Project LEAP!' sends a good message for everyone. We should all spend more time with our families and we should all spend more time exercising. I just love the family atmosphere and I think this event has been a huge success and it's only going to get better in the future."
In addition to the physical activities of the event, Packers players may be on hand signing autographs and playing with the children.
Event details will follow in the coming months. For photos from last year's event, click here.
