Since it's inception in 2011, the King's Daughters' Go Red for Girl Scouts program has more than 475 girls thinking about how to live healthier lives. In honor of the program's success, King's Daughters was presented with the Girl Scouts of Kentucky's Wilderness Road Council Community Recognition Award — one of only three such awards in the state in 2013.
The program, funded by King's Daughters and taking place during American Heart Month, has girls explore exercise techniques such as Zumba, savor exotic fruits such as passion fruit and star fruit, and learn how everyday activities such as brushing their teeth can help their hearts.
King's Daughters, its Community Relations team and the Girl Scouts all aim to teach girls healthy choices at an earlier age. Girls who participated in the program received materials to share what they had learned with their families.
