Physical Activity Participation, Student Leadership,  Teamwork

Our program started with 353 students participating in physical training throughout the week. After initial mentorship, the students planned, organized, and carried out their physical fitness and nutrition training.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

After being provided initial guidance, the students planned and organized their physical fitness activities with upperclassmen supervising, motivating, and leading the other students. The students provide constant feedback to their mentor.

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

The students have set goals for themselves and are now reaching out to other groups within the school to encourage others to "Run for Fun." They spend at least one 90-minute class a week devoted to physical fitness, with additional time after school.
