Local Schools participate in Fitness Challenge

Two Fort St. John elementary schools have successfully completed the Go Active! Fitness Challenge, earning individual schools up to $500 in Wintergreen phys-ed credits to use towards new gym equipment.

The following Fort St. John elementary schools participated in the Go Active! Fitness Challenge:

C.M Finch Elementary School – 3 classes
Christian Life Elementary School – 6 classes

More than 2,700 students from 33 schools across British Columbia have successfully completed the Challenge. The Go Active! Fitness Challenge, presented by McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada Limited with support from the Canadian Olympic Committee, promotes physical activity amongst students.

By participating in the Go Active! Fitness Challenge and exercising regularly, British Columbia students were able to improve on all six compulsory exercises, including crunches, push-ups, 50-metre dash, shuttle run, standing long jump and an endurance run. Participants’ scores were measured in May and combined with those achieved in September to determine their level of improvement.
