North Putnam Walking Day 2016

To encourage wellness in our community we invited all students and staff to join my Nutrition and Wellness classes to walk during lunches. Due to rainy weather we walked inside the gym - lap after lap. Some students logged a mile or more. Each student received and walking sneaker that was posted on our bulletin board.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Our challenge was the weather. We had a very rainy spring of 2016. We had planned to be outside walking and other play activities for the high school students. We quickly switched our plans and walked in the gym while some students shot basketballs. All activity gets students up and moving.
