PowerUP is a first-of-its-kind program to improve physical fitness and healthy eating among fifth grade students in the Allentown School District. Twice a week for 16 weeks, 175 students from seven elementary schools take part in 30 minutes of exercise led by a specially-trained health educator from the Weller Center. The students also receive a 15-minute nutrition lesson at the end of each session. PowerUP is sponsored by Highmark Blue Shield with additional funding from Just Born and the Allentown School District Foundation.
We'd like to say a big "Thank You" to our partners who helped us make this program possible!
