Get Those School Kids Moving!

Project Overview:
Based off these known facts: obese kids are at risk of future diabetes and heart trouble, nearly one in three West Virginia fifth-graders is now obese, one in five West Virginia fifth-graders has high blood pressure, every major national medical group recommends an hour a day of physical movement/exercise, plus healthier diet, and most importantly nearly all kids go to school, West Virginia schools are trying to weave physical activity into class time.

Studies show that, on the whole, kids who get little physical exercise perform more poorly on academic measures than active kids do.
