Physical Activity Participation
I have started an after school Running Club at my school because I have noticed the level of interest in being physically active increased. I was very excited to introduce this new activity to my students. I allowed my students to sign up during their PE class and after 3 days, I had 106 students join my Running Club! They love to stay after school to run with me and improve their running endurance. They have also learned proper breathing techniques during running and have just enjoyed the quality time that we get to spend together while being physically active. I'm so happy that they have grown and now enjoy participating in living a healthy lifestyle.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

The love of running has improved tremendously. When I first started at this school, the majority of the students were sedentary. As the years have gone by, the interest in physical activity and the involvement from the students has definitely increased. I'm so thrilled about this change!
