Millions of kids get out and walk

Posted on May 25, 2008 by Maggie LaBarbera

This annual event is designed to remind kids of the importance of exercise.

This year, May 8th was the annual ACES (All children exercise simultaneously) event. Millions of children in the United States and from over 50 countries were supposed to partake in the event.

Essentially, the school has the children walk together at a specific time. This was a special walk that was first started by Len Saunders, a physical ed teacher from New Jersey in 1989. This is one day to remind children of the importance of being active. Did your child's school participate in the annual event? BTW, next year's event is scheduled for May 6, 10am east coast time. Here is the website for more information. See if you can get your child's school to participate.
