Check Eligibility

You can’t always tell if a child is above a healthy weight just by looking at them. Using height and weight measures to check BMI is the most reliable way. By routinely checking your patient's weight, you may be able to identify those who are eligible to participate and benefit from the Go4Fun program. Go4Fun offers an online BMI calculator to know if a child is eligible.
