The Canberra Raiders have joined up with loop to launch the “loop Raiders Recess Program”, which will involve the Raiders visiting schools around the ACT to “provide the students with a healthy eating and activity guide full of fun facts and activities for the kids” and share their own stories.
Raiders Captain David Shillington believes that the program will be a fantastic way to guide young Canberra’s young school children on a healthy avenue for the rest of their lives.
“The loop Raiders Recess Program is a wonderful way to educate primary school children on the benefits and importance of a healthy lifestyle,” Shillington said.
“It’s a very rewarding experience as a player to be able to guide these children on the right path to improve their health and well-being. I can’t wait to get out to some schools and get involved in the program.”
