Cafeteria Manager Laurie Miller, at Windsor Hill Arts Infused Elementary, recently agreed to have the school participate in the 15-day Fit for Life Challenge sponsored by Summit Group for Subway Restaurants.

The Summit Group provided the school with all the materials needed to encourage students to track their healthy eating and physical activity leading up to the Thanksgiving break. After meeting with the school wellness committee, the manager also included all staff members to participate making it a school wide challenge.

Posters were provided to record the daily progress of each class and small prizes were given to keep the students motivated. Being that they were one of the first 10 schools to sign up for the challenge, they were assigned a local Fit Buddy to help encourage them. They also were one of a few lucky schools in the area to receive a visit from the national spokesman for Subway, Jared Fogle, also known as the “Subway Guy.”

He spoke to an assembly of classes about his past unhealthy habits that led him to become a 400-plus-pound person and showed his now famous “fat jeans.” He explained how he had lost more than 200 pounds, 15 years ago, by watching what he ate and getting physical activity daily and the importance of continuing a healthy lifestyle.

The Summit Group made the challenge 15 days to represent the 15 years that Jared has kept his weight off, however, the school wellness committee will continue to provide mini challenges throughout the remainder of the year to encourage this healthy lifestyle.
