Cherie Douglas’ proposal received a $400 award to purchase 20 pedometers to check out to students and staff. The purpose is to increase awareness of the need for physical activity and aid in a program of “friendly” competitions. The overall goal is to reduce the number of obese children at OSD. Currently, 27% of OSD students are rated as obese as compared to the 16.4% average nationally and the 20-25% statewide. Another 15% of OSD students are considered overweight and at risk for obesity.
