WHATCHU DOIN’ TO HELP?
This is a good question to ask yourself. We are all on the run all the time, we’re running to work, to care for our kids, to head to the gym to hang out with friends; there’s so much to get done, but where do we fit in the time where we do for others? I’ve talked about this before in my blog, but the reason I quick my “real” job 4 years ago was because I was volunteering at the Fresh Air Fund teaching intenSati for the day to kids. I got such a high giving back thatI literally made it my life’s work to inspire people to make healthy choices and to bring fitness to all.
A year an 1/2 ago my dear friend and professor at The New School in New York City, Natalia Mehlman Petrzela, co-founded an outstanding non-profit organization focused on children’s health. When she told me she was starting this program I immediately told her that whatever she needed I was IN! The program is called HealthClass2.0.
WHAT IS IT?
(from the website) HealthClass2.0 (HC2.0) is a path-breaking public-school program empowering children and their communities to engage in new conversations about health, food and exercise, and to bring about transformation in their own lives and the world around them. Getting into schools, leading an exhilarating workout, providing a healthy snack and facilitating discussion exploring the power of individual choice within a greater system: this is the core of HC2.0’s innovative approach to health education.
In the first year that this program started I was going into schools with Natalia and sweating with the kids, leading discussions about health and nutrition and learning first hand what our children think about health and exercise. NOW I’m co-leading a practicum for Eugene Lang
students, teaching them how to lead HC2.0 classes by leading a fitness workout and nutritional discussions. The awesome efforts of these dedicated students has enabled HC2.0 to grow into 9 NYC Public Schools reaching over 400 students!
