Radiate Happy Living
What is RADIATE HAPPY LIVING?
This is Radiate Happy Living’s history. Two teenagers from Miami, Florida, Felipe Barreneche and Alana Lima, decided to stand up and take action against the health crisis facing our rising youth today. They formed a community service project, with the mission to create a fun way to keep kids active and educate them on making wise, good food choices. Once the circuit was designed, the Radiate Happy Living project began to flourish.
Who Makes RADIATE HAPPY LIVING Happen?
The Radiate Happy Living Team consists of motivated volunteers who go to designated parks on a monthly basis to host the project’s events. During an event, children of all ages are invited to participate in the circuit.
The circuit is a carefully designed obstacle course with a combination of speed and agility exercises divided into seven sections. Between each section there is a picture of a “good” and “bad” choice of food and snacks. The kids’ choice determines whether they are qualified to move on to the next exercise.
The time it takes each kid to finish the circuit is recorded and used to rank the event’s 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Whenever kids complete the obstacle course, they receive a “Healthy Kid” award and are asked to come back to the next event to try to beat their time. This is a great incentive for the children who many times return with better health knowledge.
Where Can I Find a RADIATE HAPPY LIVING Event?
The Radiate Project happens in Miami, Florida and it is expanding to other locations. In Long Beach, California Jacquelyn Galbez and her Cali Team will be hosting events at Heartwell Park. In Floral Park, New York, team leaders Claire Murphy and Bianca Fernandez announced their first event.
