Orioles Health & Fitness Challenge Returns

Coconut Telegraph

The Orioles Health & Fitness Challenge, launched last year in partnership with HealthFit–Powered by Sarasota Memorial and SWAT (Students Working Against Tobacco), will return to Sarasota County middle schools on Monday, January 23, to teach students about the importance of physical fitness, healthy eating, and tobacco-free living.  This five-week challenge will be offered in 10 county schools for approximately 4,000 students in grades six through eight. Students will participate in a variety of health and fitness challenges, including exercises to build endurance, strength, flexibility, speed and balance. This year’s program also will include an expanded emphasis on healthy eating and avoiding tobacco. In addition, joining the program this year is Oak Park School, where faculty will adapt the curriculum for students with special needs. Sarasota County Physical Education teachers will present the program during regular school hours.
