Walk to Wellness
- Misty Rendleman, Jim Thorpe Academy
- Physical Activity Participation, Student Leadership, Teamwork
This school year, 2015-2016, Jim Thorpe Academy has been actively logging the miles. Our Health and Fitness class has been walking between 3 and 4.5 miles each and every week. Our students assess their strength every 2 to 3 weeks and many are showing growth and weight loss. They have participated in our local OSU Extension Office Healthy Foods program and are loving the introduction to new and exciting recipes. We will continue throughout this year and will complete this year STRONG!
