One in every three American children are overweight or obese. That statistic is alarming and dangerous. More and more research is showing that overweight children tend to become obese adults with a wide array of health complications resulting such as hypertension, Type I/II Diabetes, high cholesterol, atherosclerosis, CVD disease, edema, and poor quality of life overall. With the pedometers, I am challenging my students to walk at least 13,000 steps a day to achieve maximum health. At the end of the competition, each student that has met his or her goal of steps for the duration of the competition will get to attend a school wide camp-out that is geared towards health and nutrition. The name of the camp-out is going to be "Eat, Exercise, and Excel." The kids will be very motivated to attend the camp-out, thus they should move more.
