June 23, 2017 – Sequatchie County Give a Kid a Chance Day has been scheduled for July 28. The Friday event at Sequatchie County High School starts at 9 a.m. and will conclude at 11:30 a.m. Free food, games, well-child exams, haircuts, and health and safety information are just a few of the events planned for the day.

Free backpacks and school supplies will be given out to all Sequatchie County students (public, private and homeschool) while supplies last. Children must be present to receive a backpack.

Sherry Cagle, Give a Kid a Chance Event Coordinator, states that “there will be free fun for the entire family!”

The Give a Kid a Chance event, which began 10 years ago, will be celebrating by offering several fantastic family fun prizes. In order to be entered in a Grand Prize drawing, parents must preregister their child and provide documentation from the doctor or Health Department that the child had an up-to-date Well Child Exam (Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment – EPSDT) between July 28, 2016 and July 28, 2017.

Parents, please be advised that all Well Child Exams are free of charge. Make sure your medical provider is aware that your child is getting a Well Child Exam and NOT a sports physical. Sports physicals are liable for charges.

Children must be registered by July 14, 2017 to be eligible for prizes. Please note that preregistration is not required to participate in the day’s events.

A registration form was sent home with every child at the end of school. Additional forms may be picked up/ dropped off at these locations:

  • Sequatchie County U.T. Extension Office
  • Sequatchie County Health Dept.
  • Sequatchie County Library
  • Southeast Tennessee Human Resource Agency (SETHRA)

Further information on preregistration is available from Sherry Cagle at 423-634-3124. All prizes will be drawn at the Health Council meeting scheduled for Aug. 17. Winning participants will be notified after that date.
