Kyle Amos, Moonlight Elementary School physical education teacher, is committed to inspiring a lifelong habit of good nutrition and exercise.
He challenged teachers and staff at the school to join him in living healthier lifestyles with a 48-day challenge in which they each exercised 30 minutes a day for 48 days. Daily activity logs were returned to the school in time for Amos’ personal challenge – 24 hours of running and walking around the elementary school on April 17.
The 24-hour challenge will start at 9 a.m. on the playground at Moonlight Elementary School. As the school day begins, students, teachers and staff will join Amos in walking and running alongside him. Amos will finish the challenge at 9 a.m. the next morning.
For the students, the thousands of steps Amos will take as he continually jogs and moves across the elementary school campus, will mean fun.
During the event, parents and families will be invited to join Amos on the playground during the evening hours of April 17. To promote healthier choices, students are challenged to bring in dry and canned foods and hygiene items that will be donated to the Gardner Multi-Service Center.
The event will be Amos’ fourth 24-hour challenge at the elementary school.
