"Creating the Perfect After-School Fun Fitness Event"  All of us want our students to fall in love with being physically active. We hope that each class we teach bring us closer to that goal. Part of our responsibility is to show our students how enjoyable fitness can be outside of school. This session will teach you how to run a great school-wide fun fitness event that all your students will love! You’ll also learn how I’ve used these events to benefit a great cause that puts physical education equipment in the hands of teachers and students who truly need it.  Come find out how you can get involved!
Your Presenter: Kevin McGrath has taught physical education at the elementary level for the last 14 years in Alexandria, Virginia.  He created "Adopt-a-Gym" in 2015 to give his students the opportunity to raise physical education funds to give to needy low-wealth schools across the United States. To date, the program has delivered over $30,000 worth of equipment to those in need.  He hopes to meet other physical educators willing to make a difference in the lives of others by doing fun fitness fundraisers at their schools, slowly but surely eliminating inequity in the physical education world.  He also loves mentoring individual students to develop personal relationships in his school community.
