In its inaugural year, the H.E.A.L. Festival is being held on Global Youth Service Day and is a service-learning project of 11-year-old Haile Thomas, youth advisory board member for the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. Haile and her partners, the University of Arizona Medical Center's Health & Wellness Center and Grow 2B Fit Foundation, and more than 20 community supporters will present a day of fun physical activities, healthy cooking demonstrations from local chefs, and nutrition talks for the Tucson community. The goal of the H.E.A.L. Festival is to motivate kids and their families to embrace a healthy lifestyle.
