May 1st at Scera Park Elementary
In conjunction with World Asthma Day, Blue Balloon Day was created to encourage environments where everyone can breath clean air and have healthy lungs. It was created by Kendyl Bell, 2012 Miss Utah USA, who as an active teenager in drill and dance teams wondered why she found physical demands challenging until she was diagnosed with asthma.
Bell will be joining representatives from the Utah County Health Department and the American Lung Association in Utah at Scera Park Elementary for a program and pledge assembly with students. Kendyl will discuss being active despite her asthma, as well as how students can promote good air quality and the dangers of using tobacco. It's all about keeping lungs healthy!
