SPS Cares About Health


SPS Cares about health and fitness.

A lot of things have changed since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Staying active is essential for kids, even during the pandemic. Guidelines from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommend children ages six to 17 get at least one hour of moderate to vigorous exercise a day. 

While attending this fall-themed virtual fundraiser - use this opportunity to do something as a family that's active and enjoyable.  When you talk to your kids about the 5K, be sure to talk about how it's fun; not that it's something they have to do. Don't frame it as exercise. Frame it as 'let's go out for a run, a walk, hike, bike ride, or go to the playground".

Tips to Keep in Mind

Get everyone involved -- Let kids help chart out the routes you'll take. They can pick favorite parks or neighborhoods, or older kids can map out routes by distance or time. Let them decide which activity -- biking, swimming, dancing -- they want to do each time you move.

Eat and drink smart -- Drink water before, during, and after your workout. There's no need for sports drinks (unless you're working hard and sweating for an hour or more). You don't need to load up on carbohydrates like pasta the night before the race either. A well-rounded healthy diet -- that includes lots of fruits and vegetables which are healthy carbs -- will give everyone enough energy to make it to the finish line.

On race day, bring healthy snacks -- low-sugar granola bars/raisins, for example -- for after the finish line (or even for snacks during the race if you have young kids).

Keep going -- After the race is over, plan another one so everyone stays motivated to move.

Last but not least - Have fun and keep on moving SPS!
