The mission of the Healthy Lombard Foundation is to address the epidemic of childhood obesity and promote a healthier lifestyle for all community members through the "Triple-A Approach" of awareness, activities, and achievement.

With that mission in mind, Healthy Lombard developed the Flat Apple program to incentivize kids to stay active during the summer months outside of school. The 2020 program runs June 1- August 7. The program allows participants to earn tickets for eligibility to win a variety of prizes at the end of the summer. Prize winners are typically contacted in September.


To register your child, please visit and select Flat Apple 2020 under the Quick Clicks Column on the right-hand side of the page. This link will take you to the registration site. There is no fee to register for Flat Apple. Children must be registered by an adult to participate in the program.

Flat Apple provides various opportunities to earn "tickets" for eligibility for raffle prizes at the end of the summer. Earning tickets is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
