Walking to School, Doing the Healthy Bunny Hop & Latin Dancing in Asbury Park!

NJHI 2016: Building a Culture of Health in New Jersey – Communities Moving to Action, Round 2 Building a Healthier Asbury Park

Bradley Elementary School celebrated the 20th anniversary of International Walk to School month on October 11, 2016.  This special morning to celebrate walking to school as a healthy way to get our daily needed exercise was combined with our Hispanic Heritage celebration.


Lisa Lee from the Alliance for a Healthier Asbury Park and EZ Ride hand out Healthy Snacks and temporary tattoos with a walking theme during Bradley Elementary’s “Walk to School Day.”


Vice Principal William Wells assists Lisa Lee with handing out bags of multi-grain cheerios as Healthy Snacks during “Walk to School Day.”


We enjoyed greeting the children as they came to school with “Gracias por caminar a la escuela hoy!” or “Thanks for walking to school today.”


The kids loved exercising, dancing and having fun! Go kids go! Jump kids jump!


Hopscotch and Lisa, a health educator from Hackensack Meridian Health, teach the kids about eating more fruits and vegetables to stay healthy, getting enough sleep, brushing their teeth, and the importance of getting their daily exercise during our morning assembly.


The kids got to do the bunny hop with Hopscotch to DJ Ruben’s music and everyone including the teachers got to groove to Latin music!  October’s Hispanic Heritage & Walk to School Day at Bradley Elementary School was a great success thanks to the Alliance for a Healthier Asbury Park!
