Race for Education Smoothies
- Erica Phelps, Mary A. White Elementary School
- Access to Healthy Foods
Mary A White Elementary has one main PTA fundraiser each spring, the Race for Education. The entire school takes pledges based on how many laps they may walk. This year they raised over $15000 being active! In the past, they have offered sweets and treats, but this year the PTA approached Mr. Przystas (FUTP 60 advisor) and Mrs. Stone (district food service director) about offering smoothies as a healthy treat. Fuel Up to Play 60 leaders helped pour and serve smoothies in shifts throughout the event. This was a huge success!
