Mrs. Atherton from San Diego CA is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the equipment needed to exercise and track their progress to decrease negative medical conditions associated with being overweight.
My student population closely mirrors the diversity of our city. Our middle school has more than a dozen different home languages with a variety of backgrounds. Just over half of our students receive free or reduced lunch, and half of our population is bussed in from areas other than the surrounding neighborhoods. The students face increasing health risks that can affect their wellness; thereby impacting their quality of life and possibly their life span. We are committed to providing an environment where students are supported in making healthy choices for lifelong health.
As we have seen obesity rates climb dramatically, my desire is to have the funding to purchase equipment and educational materials to provide our students with hands-on equipment to increase their activity level and track their progress. Student will learn how to eat healthy and stay active to prevent life long health complications.
We re requesting sports equipment including fitbits, exercise bands and exercise video instructions which will be used as tools that students can increase their physical activity and monitor their activity to decrease the negative health conditions associated with being overweight.
With negative health trends such as rising childhood obesity rates and diseases from sedentary lifestyles, wouldn't it be cool to be part of reversing that trend by inspiring and educating children to improve their health through fitness and nutrition?
