Fitness Fridays Spark the Day at Coffin School
Fridays are hopping--and jumping, walking, swining, and running--this year at the P.T. Coffin Elementary School in Brunswick


Orchestrated by Let's Go! 5-2-1-0 Goes to School, Physical Educator teacher Shane Hutchings leads a weekly walk/run gives students and staff a 15-minute dose of physical activity, fresh air and fun. Orange cones outline a route around the school. Assisted by volunteer staff, students walk or run; some try to improve their distance.

Let's Go! 5-2-1-0 Goes to School is a program In partnership with Mid Coast Hospital which aims to increase healthy eating and physical activity in the school environment. The program endorses the "5-2-1-0" message, which emphasizes the importance of 5 or more fruits and vegetable, 2 hours or less of recreational screen time, 1 hour or more of physical activity every day, and zero sugary drinks drinks, more water and milk.
