Colts Fitness Camp
- Karen O'Neill, Triton Middle School
- Physical Activity Participation
The Indianapolis Colts Youth Football Department along with IU Health, Riley Hospital for Children and the Indiana Dairy Council Inc. have teamed up to create the Colts Fitness Camp. Colts alumni player and Super Bowl XXLI winner Mike Prior teaches students how to work out and live a healthy lifestyle during this hour long school program. We had 135 students participate in this program which included 5th grade - 8th grade. They worked them out using dumbbell exercises and jump ropes as part of the fitness plan. They also discussed the value of nutrition and each student was given a carton of milk to drink when they finished. It was a great day!
