At Indy in the Classroom, we believe that education in health and fitness is just as important as learning to conjugate verbs or calculate the area of a triangle. Therefore, over the next several months, we will be introducing a new ongoing feature that encourages healthy living through exercise and nutrition. With childhood obesity rates climbing at an alarming rate, we hope to provide fun ways to encourage everyone to get up, get going and get fit.
We hope you'll join us as we launch this new adventure by striving for life-long fitness yourself. For those Indy fans who may already be actively participating in races or walks, feel free to print off a TEAM INDY race bib to pin on your back at your next event. We may never be the elite, corporate-sponsored athlete or fitness phenom, but we can still be part of a team that promotes fun, fitness... and learning!
So at your next event, take a picture with your TEAM INDY bib and send it to us along with the event name. And if you'd like, write a few words and tell us how you did or why you think health education is important. As they come in to us, we'll post all pictures and comments on a new TEAM INDY page of the website.
By the way, we hope to have TEAM INDY shirts coming soon. If you're interested in one, be sure to email us and let us know. We'll have proofs as well as more details in the coming weeks.
