Walk and Roll Tomorrow

A message and invitation from Amy at Girls In The Game:

"Tomorrow, Wednesday, October 7, is National Walk and Roll to School Day. It’s a national day to celebrate fitness and encourage students to walk/bike/roll to school rather than drive.

In schools across the country activities and fests are held to celebrate.

The exciting news is that the Mayor’s Fitness Council, a group I am on, selected Gale School as one of the two schools for this year.
What this means is we will be at Gale from 7:45-8:45 am helping to lead fitness stations with the students. The principal and community leaders will briefly speak and then they will lead the school in a morning stretch followed by an energized walk around the school/park.

Girls in the Game agreed to help lead, as we are trying to connect the girls at Gale with Willye White Park. What we still need are 4-5 volunteers who can come help us with activities – for the boys and girls.

Anyone you can pass this too – I’d be most appreciative! I know people are busy – but we just need 1 HOUR of their time!!"
