Last fall, the Marshalltown School District ... (landed a $1. 4 million DOE grant) to focus on getting kids active. The district purchased 4,000 pedometers with the grant money and found many students weren’t reaching a recommended goal of 9,100 steps a day.
Physical fitness in the 1950s:
Scene: The breakfast table.
Dad: Cut the grass this morning.
Jim: But I was going to hike down to Kalo with Richie and Ron.
Dad: Cut the grass first.
So it was spoken. And done.
Free pedometers for layabout kids? ? You have to sh*tting me.
