Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
The fifth annual Family Fitness Walk was held on Saturday, April 27, 2019, at Edmonson County High School. South Edmonson Elementary and Kyrock Elementary students and family members could walk or run their choice of number of laps on the ECHS track.
Students rang a bell each time they completed a lap on the track and students used a pulse meter to track their heart rate. Once participants completed their laps, they visited activity stations which were set up by a group of WKU Physical Education majors, that included hula hoops, jump ropes, beanbag toss, ball toss, skip-its and a pushup station where students could challenge their parent/guardian to a pushup contest.
Nutrition related hands-on activities that educated students on healthy food choices accompanied the healthy snack table where bananas, carrots, lightly salted pretzels and bottled water were provided
