She had an amazing time visiting local preschools and reading, exercising and visiting with them. They talked about different ways of exercising and staying fit, and how to eat healthy. She was so pleased to see one center with a vegetable garden! The children were so enthusiastic to tell her all about what they were growing and the different ways they liked their vegetables prepared. Her visits always included some group dancing and tumbling, which they really enjoyed, as did Megan!
She also participated in the local Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation walk for a cure. As juvenile diabeties is sometimes linked with childhood obesity, she felt this was in line with my project. She thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful afternoon, proudly walking with friends and families of those affected by the disease, while raising awareness.
Her efforts will not stop here. She is a girl who is striving to be a role model by making fitness a prioity in my life, for a stonger, smarter and healthier future.
