Grants help schools, nonprofits encourage kids to keep moving

from Rochester Democrat & Chronicle

At Schlegel Road Elementary School in Webster, N.Y., students spend about 15 minutes after lunch, every other day, in new fitness centers stocked with Hula-Hoops, stability balls and video games that require students to pedal stationary bicycles, jog in place or pantomime bowling. The centers replace time otherwise spent in the cafeteria, perhaps reading or playing board games. The goal at both schools, with these efforts and more, is to get kids moving more. The schools have been using funding from the Greater Rochester Health Foundation to train teachers, buy equipment and in some cases to hire staff to make these changes. more
