LAUSD Senior Deputy Superintendent Michelle King joined us to tell us all about the first ever LAUSD 5k ‘Move It’ Challenge and Health Festival to be held Saturday, Nov. 16, 2013 at Dodger Stadium. In partnership with the Los Angeles Dodgers, this District fundraiser aims to raise awareness about the importance of physical activity and a healthy lifestyle among students, employees and community members, while raising important funding for the District’s new Wellness Centers. Currently, a dozen LAUSD Wellness Centers exist throughout the District, with two more scheduled to open in early 2014. The centers offer health and wellness programs and services, along with primary prevention education, a connection to career pathway programs and parent education across the LAUSD community. For more information on the event including how you can sign up, you visit the website.
