Resource families enjoy a break in the park while kids are entertained with fun activities, custom workouts and more

BUELTON, Calif. - May 20, 2019 - eTradeWire -- Our County. Our Kids hosted a successful family fun day at the park on Sunday, May 19th to show appreciation for the resource families making a difference in the lives of the many youth in care who need it the most. The event gave resource parents a chance to disconnect from life's daily stressors and enjoy an exciting day with the entire family.

Over 130 people attended the event and enjoyed a BBQ with a plethora of fun and relaxing activities including, massages, face painting, bounce houses, a magic show, and a critter zone where children were able to see wild animals up close and in person. The Emergency Childcare Bridge and the Public Health Care Department were onsite to share educational information with resource families and 14 students from San Marco's High School's RFASST program were in attendance to provide childcare throughout the day.

Custom Workouts, a gym based out of Santa Maria, generously provided fun workout sessions to children, teens and adults at no charge. Custom Workouts is a hands on gym that is results based, with a mission to provide affordable fitness for everyone, in a non-intimidating environment that is open to anyone with a fitness goal.
