North Valley Hospital in Whitefish is donating $12,000 to the local Boys & Girls Clubs in Columbia Falls and Evergreen, sponsoring the Triple Play wellness program.
Triple Play refers to the combination of proper diet, exercise, and the formation of positive relationships. Club professionals teach portion control and general health principles. Members receive coaching in sports and recreation to develop their coordination and leadership skills.
North Valley Hospital is also taking an active approach. Hospital employees plan to share lessons on topics such as healthy eating, backpack safety, and effective hand washing. As part of this effort, North Valley is partnering with another local business to rebuild and donate six desktop computers and software for the boys and girls to use.
