WakeMed Energize! is a nationally recognized program designed for kids ages 6-18 offering a family-centered approach to making healthy lifestyle changes. WakeMed Energize! has successfully improved the health and well-being of hundreds of families in Wake County over the past 10 years. WakeMed recognizes one of the greatest barriers for families accessing the program is transportation. To provide easier access to Energize! WakeMed is partnering with Garner Parks & Recreation programs to provide space closer to home for our patients. As an added benefit, families are exposed to all that Garner has to offer in classes, greenways, group exercise programs, youth sports, cooking classes and more. After the free 12-week Energize! program, families can continue their new healthy living habits using the health and fitness resources available in their backyards.

WakeMed has established current and future programs with Garner. For more information about Energize!, please do not hesitate to reach out to Andi Curtis at acurtis@wakemed.org or 919-612-4041.
