Edmunds’ Kids Celebrate Health In Iowa’s Healthy State Walk!
On October 2nd, Edmunds Elementary School participated in the 9th annual Healthiest State Walk for the state of Iowa. Thousands of Iowans in all 99 counties walked or ran on this day to help make Iowa the healthiest state – and increase awareness of healthy choices. Students and some staff members braved the gloomy weather in the morning, walking outside for 30 minutes. When the rains came, it didn’t stop the afternoon classes as the walking party continued inside! 3rd-5th graders wore pedometers so the students could see how far they walked and how many steps they took. Walking is an easy way to add movement to your day and walking with friends can help increase one’s social health as well as your physical health!
