Officials Unveil Plans For Children’s Center

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s wife, Cathy Malloy, is joining U.S. Rep. John Larson to unveil plans for a new fitness and wellness center for children in the Parkville section of Hartford.

Both Cathy Malloy and Larson are scheduled to release details of the facility during a Friday morning event.

The center is intended to provide low-income families with access to comprehensive fitness and wellness programs. It aims to address health issues facing Connecticut children, including obesity and malnutrition.

Available services are expected to include child development screening, cooking demonstrations, community gardening and movement workshops.

Efforts to fund and build the center have been led by Family Life Education, a nonprofit organization based in Hartford.
