Walking for Wellness
- Sarah Kahm, Black Elk Elementary School
- Community Involvement, Physical Activity Participation
Our school has offered a Walking Club program for the past 13 years. Throughout the years, the community and students have been invited to go on a mile walk before school to help promote overall health and wellness. Every year, we average about 50-75 students and a few community members that join us on a regular basis. This past year we have had over 175 students sign up for the Walking Club and averaged over about 100 walkers a week. This is partly due to the excitement over Fuel up to Play 60 and its resources and funding. Thanks for helping get our community and students excited about exercise.
