Inspirational Videos
O 1. Clymer...
O Clymer School, in Chautauqua County, NY has had a morning
jogging program for 5 years now. Currently, about 85% of
elementary students walk or jog every morning that school is in
session! Clymer states their rate of overweight and obese
students is 10% overweight and just 5% obese, far below the
national averages. In comparison, NYSDOH states that 21% of
upstate NY elementary students are obese. This is a very
low/no cost program which increases physical activity and, as
the teachers in the video note, improves the morning
classroom environment because kids show up to class "ready
to learn." - This information was from Lisa Miller's email from
the NYS Heart listserv.
