Students Lead Walking Pledge
The students at Austin MS have formed their own Walking Club, led by FUTP 60 Ambassador Jaime Lopez. The students have pledged to walk at least one mile throughout the day. Jaime took the lead in presenting to the students all the benefits of walking and staying active. Way to go Jaime and Go Bruins!

How did students and adults work together as a team?
