  1. 1. Contact: Daniel Garcia Tel. 214-567-5309 Email: danielgarcia@mavs.uta.edu Explore the Great Outdoors and Discover All its Benefits FORT WORTH, Texas- Do you love the outdoors? Are you ready to get your family and friends away from their TV sets and gadgets and enjoy some fresh air? Well , encourage them to come out and participate this June for National Great Outdoors Month. National Great Outdoors Month is a proclamation by the president and all 50 governors and mayors encouraging active fun outdoor recreational activities in parks, rivers and forest. According to the National Wildlife Federation the average boy/girl spend as few as 30 minutes outside each day, and more than seven hours each day in front of an electronic screen. June is the beginning of summer and kids are out of school, but instead of having your kids spend their whole summer watching TV, play video games or other gadgets, plan a day to participate in outdoor activities. “The Fort Worth Trinity River offers plenty of outdoor activities like cycling, horse back riding, boating, fishing and much more for anyone who’s interested, “ said Stacey Pierce, executive director for Streams and Valleys. “It’s important for people to get out and enjoy what the city has to offer and I hope people come out and enjoy more than 40 miles of safe, beautiful trails winding along the river and its tributaries.” Recent research conducted by the National Wildlife Federation shows that childhood obesity rates have more than doubled in the last 20 years and the United States has become the largest consumer of ADHD medications in the world. Some of the benefits from participating in outdoor activities include: Body  Increase fitness levels and build active healthy bodies that can help one in three kids who are obese get fit.  Spending time outdoors raises Vitamin D levels, which will help children in the future problems like heart disease, diabetes and other health issues.
  2. 2.  Exposure to oxygenated air, trees and nature instantly increase energy levels while decreasing the feeling of exhaustion.  Outdoor activities will also help lower the chances of becoming nearsighted.  Spending time outdoors has a beneficial effect on the body’s immune system. Mind  Higher standardized test in math, reading, writing and listening are results from outside activities.  Individuals who spent time outdoors report an increase in self -esteem and decrease in depression.  Natural setting exposure may have an effect in reducing ADHD symptoms. Spirit  Researchers at University of Illinois report that exposure to natural settings in after-school and weekend activities may be “widely effective” in reducing symptoms for attention deficit in children.  Increased time in nature is found to help make people nicer, enhance social interactions and more. “It is important for children to get out and start exploring the great outdoors but it’s also the important for parents to provide them with activities to keep them interested,” said Pierce. So do you like the outdoors a lot more now? Then get out there and go visit your local parks, trails and rivers this June and celebrate Great Outdoors Month with your family and friends. If they hesitate at first, just refer to any of these beneficial reasons to them and plan for a fun day out in the sun. This June, get out, get your Vitamin D, stay healthy and become a nice person by simply exploring the outdoors. If you’re struggling for ideas on outdoor activities, you can visit Streams and Valleys.
  3. 3. Contact: Daniel Garcia Phone: 214-567-5309 Email:Daniel.garcia@mavs.uta.edu TO: Bruce Wayne Nov. 26, 2014 Fort Worth Child Magazine Dear Mr. Wayne: Do you love the outdoors? Are you ready to get your family and friends away from their TV sets and gadgets and enjoy some fresh air? What better way to get your kids out of the house than going outdoors to explore. I thought I’d take this opportunity to let you know that June is National Great Outdoors Month. Recent research show that in the last 20 years child obesity and children spending time in front of a screen have increased dramatically in the United States. So I would like to reach out and encourage your readers to learn some of the benefits from spending more time outdoors. The National Wildlife Federation has done extensive research on all the benefits people receive from the great outdoors. Streams and Valleys are active members in the restoration of the Trinity River and they offer a lot of outdoor activities for anyone who maybe interested. I believe your magazine is a good platform in which to relay this information for your readers who may have kids and are interested in doing outdoor activities with their kids. I don’t have kids but I do enjoy spending time and being active with my family outdoors. June is the beginning of summer and Texas is full of outdoor activities. I am interested in this topic because I can’t stand seeing the younger youth spending time behind a screen missing out on their childhood. I look forward to talking to you and maybe I’ll see you out outdoors this June. Sincerely, Daniel Garcia
