Deep Creek Elementary School Receives Grant to Combat Childhood Obesity

Deep Creek Elementary School will receive $2000 in funding to support its new ING Run for Something Better Program, offering students a minimum of an eight-week running program that will conclude with a culminating running event in celebration of the students' achievements. NASPE has developed unique running lesson plans, based on the National Standards for Physical Education (NASPE, 2004), and specifically targeted for fifth- through eighth-grade students. These activity plans, coupled with other program materials such as distance logs and a running journal, will aid in the development of running skills and preparation for a culminating running event.

For more information contact Chad Triolet at the school (757-548-5333).
