    OWL on the Water helps kids find a love of exercise

    OWL on the Water (OOTW) is a unique rowing-based exercise program designed to help kids with weight challenges discover their inner athlete in a supportive team environment. The program is open to OWL patients aged 11 1/2 and older, and participants must maintain active participation in the Optimal Weight for Life (OWL) Clinic Program to remain eligible. We offer 4 sessions each year. The main goals are to foster an enjoyment of exercise while improving fitness for health. 

    For more information about OWL on the Water please contact Sarah Picard at sarah.picard@childrens.harvard.edu or Steven Coletti at 617-919-6566 or steven.coletti@childrens.harvard.edu. To schedule appointments in the OWL Clinic (required for participation in OOTW) please call 617-355-5159.

    We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
