Building a Healthy Community Through Fuel Up To Play 60

“Our community has been motivated by the positive changes we are seeing since participating in Fuel Up to Play 60. Two years ago Lowell Elementary received a grant to help make our school more healthy and active. The funding helped with two main events: a Zumba/Smoothie Night and a Bowl Away Diabetes Night.

Our Zumba/Smoothie event drew over 300 people – it was awesome! After zumba we celebrated with four stations where families were able to make healthy smoothies full of veggies, fruits and dairy. The event was full of energy and the students really enjoyed planning as well as participating with their families.

Bowl Away Diabetes was also a very fun and active family event. Students were encouraged to write essays on how they can get their families to be active and healthy, with 25 students winning five free tickets to bowl. Getting our community involved and supporting our students in positive and active events has made our community stronger and healthier.

Students helped develop the ideas and events for our school. As a Program Advisor, I helped support our leadership team with tools, time and help. Our students set the dates, made flyers, posters, helped set up the event and supervised it. They have made all of the difference in the world. Through this process they learned that involving parents and teachers is essential in making our school and community more active and healthier”  – Daniel Velazquez, PE Teacher and Fuel Up To Play 60 Program Advisor, Lowell Elementary School, Mesa.
