The Lodish and Peabody Family’s pic won the prize for “Barefoot in the Grass,” one of a few categories for which the nonprofit called on submissions. The photo shows nine-year-old Fresh Air Fund visitor Kaelyn enjoying some open space with her host sibling Violet Peabody.
“The girls had a great time together just enjoying the ‘typical’ rites of summer like swimming, biking, walking the dog, eating ice cream and going to camp,” said host mom Stephanie Lodish.
“Simple but so special.”
Since 1877 the Fresh Air Fund has provided the free opportunity for low-income New York City children ages six to 18 to spend part of the summer with host families in 13 states in the United States and Canada.
