Second-graders graduate from health and wellness program

    SALISBURY, N.C.– Rowan-Salisbury School System second-graders celebrated their graduation from the Fit for Motion youth leadership program held in 12 Rowan County schools. Each student was presented with a certificate of completion and athletic bag to commemorate their hard work. During the ceremony, one student selected from each class shared his or her thoughts on what it means to be healthy. Parents of the graduates also attended the event.
    Fit for Motion was designed by Rowan Regional Medical Center, Food Lion and the YMCA of Rowan County, in response to the pediatric obesity epidemic identified by the American Academy of Pediatrics in 2003. The program educates youth about healthy lifestyle behaviors and encourages youth leadership development. It incorporates exercise routines, talks on nutrition and other health topics and games to inspire participants to become healthy lifestyle role models for their classmates and family members. Fit for Motion began in 2008.
