Please pass the following email/information on to your friends and neighbors:

Eva and Toni,

Tomorrow (Wednesday, October 7) is National Walk and Roll to School Day. It’s a national day to celebrate fitness and encourage students to walk/bike/roll to school rather than drive.

In schools across the country activities and fests are held to celebrate.

The exciting news is that the Mayor’s Fitness Council, a group I am on, selected gale School as one of the two schools for this year. What this means is we will be at Gale from 7:45-8:45 helping to lead fitness stations with the students. The principal and community leaders will briefly speak and then they will lead the school in a morning stretch followed by an energized walk around the school./park.

Girls in the Game agreed to help lead, as we are trying to connect the girls at gale with Willye White Park. What we still need are 4-5 volunteers who can come help us with activities – for the boys and girls.
Anyone you can pass this too – I’d be most appreciative! I know people are busy – but we just need 1 HOUR of their time!!

They can email me or call me at the office 312.633.4263.
