Recently, I was asked by PE4LIFE to be a speaker at a new state-wide project designed to help reduce childhood overweight/obesity. I hope to see you there!
Background: On Monday, April 12th, there will be a special “PE Summit” designed to be a kick-off event for a state-wide obesity-prevention initiative envisioned by PE4LIFE and the Iowa Business Council (IBC). Please read below for additional details!
Time and Place: The Summit will be from 9:00 AM – 2:30 PM on the campus of Drake University (Des Moines, Iowa) in the Olmstead Center, Parents Hall.

Details: PE4life and the Iowa Business Council (IBC) have partnered to create the Adopt-A-School Challenge. The Challenge seeks to develop an enriched culture of active, healthy lifesyles in Iowa’s children and youth.
This partnership will provide schools with the opportunity to directly enhance their physical education programs through professional development, training and ongoing support, and equipment grants. It is the goal of this partnership to provide scholarships to 50 schools who are ready and willing to improve.
To learn more about this opportunity and how your school can get involved, attend the PE4life/IBC Adopt-A-School Challenge Summit on Monday, April 12th at Drake University in Des Moines. This FREE event (online registration is a must!) will provide insight to the Adopt-A-School Challenge and give you a taste of PE4life’s Core Principles through a variety of learning opportunities. Additionally, you will be given the chance to apply for an Adopt-A-School scholarship.
