Soup Can Workout Keeps Us Active and Helps Those in Need

We worked with a local 503C non-profit organization to bring in a fitness instructor who will teach a lesson using cans of food. After the workout is over, the cans are collected and donated to a food pantry.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Our student team helps plan the activities, the adults just set up the guests and the location reservations. The fitness instructor that works with Peyton's Promise also uses advocates in our school.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

The instructor taught us simple exercises and told the kids to go home and teach their families the exercises.
