"Around the World: Destination Health"
This elementary school fitness program, designed to fight childhood obesity, encourages students to get fit — one country at a time.
The globe-trotting-themed exercise program was developed by students at Notre Dame Academy and St. John's Jesuit High School in Toledo, who were first-place winners of ProMedica's Fields of Green high school scholarship competition.
Throughout the program, students embark on a “journey” to six countries in the world (United States, Australia, Spain, Iceland, South Africa, and Japan) where the students learn about cultural practices as well as physical activities from each highlighted country.
