Press release from CANI:
CANI challenges families to go “media free”
It is estimated that the average person watches more than 7 hours of television a day. That equates to more than 2,500 hours a year, or 106 days. While TV programs may be informative or educational, they also can steal quality family time. In today’s busy society, quality time together as a family is priceless. That’s why CANI is challenging local families to “disconnect” and “reconnect” during “Media Free Family Fun Week,” Sept. 20-27.
CANI invites families to enjoy free pizza on Sept. 20 and Sept. 27, 6 p.m. at CANI’s office, 227 E. Washington Blvd. in Fort Wayne, to learn about the effects of media, and receive many ideas on how to turn off the media and turn on family interaction. During the week, families can enjoy discounted activities at local fun spots. Each participating family who completes the challenge will receive one Wal-Mart gift card per family member.
For more information and to RSVP, contact Family Education Coordinator, Sarah Arnold, (260) 423-3546, ext. 296.
