Healthy Lifestyles Club: Are you ready to make a change in your life for the new year? Maybe your goal is to exercise more, or maybe you’d like to eat healthier foods. Perhaps you want to lower your anxiety or figure out how to get better quality sleep? “New Year, New Me” goals don’t have to be difficult or huge changes.

Santa Clarita Track Club “Strides for Wellness Challenge”: The Santa Clarita Track Club is offering an exciting new opportunity to 50 Hart District students and 10 staff in “The Strides for Wellness Challenge” beginning January 20. The primary goal of this challenge is to make participants aware of the services offered by our Wellness Center. It will incorporate a five-week physical fitness and wellness program showing the importance of nutrition; physical activity; rest; and stress reduction to balance social emotional health. The “Strides for Wellness Challenge” is a short term, team-driven challenge designed to get kids moving. There are significant health benefits of even moderate physical exercise (specifically walking and running, but also cycling, skateboarding, dancing, snowboarding, and circuit training) . The challenge pairs the ‘Endomondo’ fitness app with an adapted version of the Jeff Galloway run-walk-run training method. During the five-week challenge from January 20 to February 23 2020, participants will complete a basic physical fitness program, accomplishing light aerobic activity goals at a minimum of 3 times per week for 45-60 minutes while gaining awareness of social-emotional health topics using a ‘Wellness Passport’ provided by Mrs. Flaherty in room 615. As an added incentive, the top ten student participants completing the challenge will receive a $50 certificate from Runner’s Lane specialty shoe store. 50 Hart District student participants receive free entry in the SCTC’s tenth annual Mardi Gras Madness 5K Run / Walk set for February 23, 2020, at the Valencia Town Center, which draws more than 1,000 attendees annually, and has sold out every year since 2012. This final event in the challenge further showcases the benefits of healthy lifestyle choices and positive social engagement. If you are interested in participating in “The Strides for Wellness Challenge,” please see Mrs. Flaherty ASAP in room 615 to pick up a challenge packet and passport, sign a waiver, and take the pre-challenge survey by Friday, January 17 so you’ll be ready to start come Monday. Hope to see you take strides toward wellness!
