Physical Activity Participation
The students are exited every time our club meets. They are extremely happy to be able to walk or run after school. Students who have never shown an interest in walking or running any long distance are now fully engaged in every outing. This has transferred into the school day as well. There are days they ask to go walk or run a mile instead of playing games. It is a very rewarding feeling to have the support of the students in my efforts to help them become healthier individuals.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

The students are excited about being active after school. They are always ready to participate and try to go farther than they have before. They are having so much fun walking and running at the pace they choose.
