ND offering kids a healthy activity

Posted:

Notre Dame is making an effort to keep local children healthy.

Its all part of a new program at the Compton Family Ice Arena called Experience the Ice.

They bring kids into the arena, many of which have never even been on ice skates.

The children are first taught about the importance of being healthy and active and then they get to hit the ice.

"I think with the obesity epidemic going on in the US its really important to capture this at a young age," says Kevin Deeth of the Compton Family Ice Arena.

Organizers are planning to continue the program twice each month.
