Get Moving!

Feb 27, 2013 Comments Off on Get Moving! admin

Revere on the Move has two opportunities to get our community members active.


School Fitness Challenge
During the first week of March all schools in Revere will be inviting their students to take part in a Wellness Challenge. Elementary schools will be participating in the Jump Rope for Heart Program and the middle and high schools will also have various activities.

Parents, encourage your child to participate and take interest in their accomplishment to help them set up healthy habits for life. Additional School Wellness Challenge activities will be happening in the schools in April and June.

Walk to School Program
Walking to school does more than increase a child’s rate of physical activity, it’s a vital part of a child’s growth that helps them develop strong judgment, social and concentration skills. Visit to learn more about how walking to school can improve your child’s concentration.

Students that walk to school arrive ready to learn and are more able to participate and enjoy physical activities throughout the school day. Walking to school fosters a child’s independence and increases their awareness of their surroundings. The Revere Walk to School program encourages Revere students and their families to walk to school daily. The program provides workshops in pedestrian safety training for our 2nd grade students, coordinates walk groups within schools and neighborhoods, and collaborates with the Revere Police Department and the Department of Public Works to address neighborhood traffic and safety concerns.

With the onset of spring, the Revere Walks to School program, a Revere on the Move initiative sponsored by WalkBoston and Massachusetts General Hospital will be supporting and encouraging more families and students to walk to school. Revere on the Move is committed to providing residents with a variety of opportunities to be healthy and active in our community.
