Mr. Boldt from Lexington KY is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Natural Movement in PE

Help me give my students access to a class with content that is more than sports with access to movement education equipment, not sports, not traditional weight lifting.

My Students

I love my students because they are so unique yet so similar. Each one of them has a different story as to why they ended up at my school, but each one of them is here pursuing the same goal; to pick themselves up and change the course of their life.

They came to us after experiencing difficulties at their districted school for whatever reason; behavior, truancy, lack of motivation, or a chance to improve their mental state/health.

Help them to uncover the treasure that is their health and wellness. They will soon see where a clear, healthy mind, with positive coping strategies can take them.

My Project

I played sports growing up. I lifted weights. I abused my body through two tours in Iraq as a medic. There were mornings that I could hardly get out of bed.

I was introduced to the idea of natural movement techniques; my range of motion returned, my outlook changed, my health changed, my life changed.

Through six years of teaching PE in an alternative setting, I have made great strides changing so many of the negative attitudes towards PE in my school.

My students are ready and primed to gain a deeper understanding of fitness. We are slowly leaving "sports class" behind and transitioning towards a lifetime education in physical fitness and health.

Please help me help my students to take back their health and wellness.
