“Seventy-three percent of Vermont students do not get the recommended 30 minutes of moderate exercise on five or more days a week. My platform includes teaching children fitness classes including ballet, martial arts and horseback riding. In addition to a fitness blog linking and motivating teens, I will help children work together, encourage their friends and family and provide examples and education around making physical activity a daily part of their lives.”
