CSX Teams up with Olympic Silver Medalist to Keep Area Students Active


Students in Northeast Florida are getting a lot more physical activity during the school day, in large part due to a sponsorship of the GoNoodle program by CSX, Florida Blue and St. Vincent's HealthCare. Childhood obesity is still the leading health issue affecting kids, and many kids fall well below the recommended 60 minutes of daily physical activity despite research proving the benefits physical activity on learning. Jacksonville area schools are using the interactive physical activity breaks of GoNoodle as a way to get kids up and moving during the school day.

GoNoodle is an in-classroom physical activity resource designed to improve student health and performance. Research shows that health education and physical activity play a critical role in a child's school experience and are essential to a child's growth and development. CSX is excited to partner with organizations like GoNoodle to bring healthy activity programs into the classroom because it helps to ensure that students in the communities CSX serves have the tools and focus needed to learn effectively and are prepared to do so.

Local school Carter G. Woodson recently won the GoNoodle "Be a Champ" contest by generating 81,582 minutes of in-classroom physical activity since the middle of January. As a reward, on February 27th, Olympic Silver Medalist Hyleas Fountain (Beijing 2008) visited with and led students in GoNoodle activity breaks during a school-wide assembly.

"As someone who has devoted my life and livelihood to being physically active, I'm proud to help share that passion with elementary school students in Jacksonville and hopefully inspire another generation with the benefits of being physically fit," said Olympic Silver Medalist Hyleas Fountain.

In addition to the track and field game, GoNoodle includes dancing, stretching, and even calming exercises, along with games that incorporate spelling, vocabulary and math with physical activity. Northeast Florida teachers can learn more about GoNoodle by visiting www.gonoodle.com.
