SCW NJHS kicks off Heart Healthy Month

Heart Healthy Month, which encourages healthy choices, is being held at St. Clare Walker (SCW) Middle School.

To raise awareness and raise money for the American Heart Association, the St. Clare Walker Middle School chapter of the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is sponsoring Heart Healthy Month. On February 6 a school-wide kick-off assembly was held.

On February 28, a culminating event will be held. This event will be held during physical education and exploratory arts classes. At this event, students will participate in 11 stations designed to get them moving and active. Their resting heart rate and active heart rate will be monitored.

The final activity at this event will be an obstacle course race with students dressing up as characters. In addition to fund-raising, the National Junior Honor Society is hoping to encourage their fellow students to make healthy choices and live heart-healthy lives.
