March 8, 2017 No Comments Post a comment

Everitt Middle School in Wheat Ridge, Colo. has been integrating Fuel Up to Play 60 into more than just PE class. They recently had students do a writing assignment about the program – read below to hear what the students had to say about the program and the impact it’s having on their school and lives. Everitt was awarded a grant from Western Dairy this year – they used the funds to build a smoothie cart and serve free smoothies to students participating in after-school clubs and activities.
