National Walk and Roll to School Day

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.

What this means is we will be at Gale School from 7:45-8:45 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 and Willye B. White Park. Girls in the Game agreed to help lead, as they are trying to connect the girls at Gale School with Willye B. 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!!

They can email me or call me at the office 312.633.4263.
