More than 80 classes at Thunder Bay Junior High School took part in the ‘Get Fit Don’t Sit’ exercise challenge b there was only one winner. Some of the exercises included walking laps around the track, jumping jacks and more.
‘Get Fit Don’t Sit’ day is inspired to help people get up and move throughout the day. Sitting for long periods of time can be more dangerous than smoking.
8th Grader, Brianna Boyk said the program is great and it feels good to be able to get up and move during school hours. Mrs. Samp’s third hour Social Studies class won a healthy pizza for their participation.
The healthy pizza wasn’t your typical cheese and pepperoni. Students indulged into a unique slice of fruit for breakfast.
Community Health Coordinator, Erica Phillips said the idea is to help kids become more aware of what they are eating so they don’t suffer from health problems.
