Devils On The Go

Last week after school, I had the privilege of speaking to the Devils On The Go students @ GMS, giving them an overview of the CREATION acronym principles C - Choice, R - Rest, E - Environment, A - Activity, T - Trust, I - Interpersonal Relationships, O - Outlook, and N - Nutrition to encourage them on their wellness journey. But really, I am the one who was encouraged by these awesome students and their awesome teachers. They have a really great thing going, that I would love to see happening at all schools!

Basically, each time they are together after school, they enjoy a healthy snack and then spend their time exercising through walking, hiking Takoma's Creation Health Nature Trail or doing yoga. During the fall and spring when the weather is nice, they train for 5K's using the Couch to 5K program. Some of these kids could not even walk/jog for a few minutes when they started, and now they are completing 5K's!

Don't they look great in their shirts? I look forward to meeting them out on our Creation Health trail this spring, but for today, I am off to work with the lovely students @ Tusculum View!
