United Way teamed up with Global scholar’s academy to discuss the importance of eating right and staying active. A few of our student-athletes provided insight to the children on the importance of becoming active at a young age. Emma Lazaroff, Abby Snyder, Cody Robinson, and Tricia Leeson were among the student athletes who participated.

“I got to help Durham students learn about healthy lifestyles and how they can implement these changes into their own lives through fitness plans and healthier food choices, said Lazaroff.” “It was awesome to see how simple it was to make a difference in their lives by volunteering a few hours of my day.”

One the last day of the lectures, fifth graders presented their findings of what a successful meal plan should look like and how many calories you burn for various activities. Each presentation showed the eagerness of the fifth graders to stay active both at home and in school. Each one mentioned they need more time in physical education class to help their bodies healthy.

This was the first time student-athletes teamed up with both United Way and Global Scholar’s Academy. The goal was to leave the fifth and sixth graders motivated to stay active by seeing the benefits of the activities.
