Major 1-2-3 Results

Major 1-2-3 Go was held May 11, 2013 at the Shelbyville High School track and Healthy Shelby County was there!  Hendricks Elementary was the winning school, with Waldron Elementary coming in second and Loper Elementary, third!  The winning schools received cash prizes. Fun prizes were given-out throughout the day and 2 youth won IPads!  Over 425 persons competed on behalf of all the county elementary schools!  3,190,867 steps were logged  – around 12,076 miles!

The 1-2-3 Go event provides fun physical activity as Major Pediatrics works to increase awareness of childhood obesity and how to combat it.  For many it was a family affair, as parents and grandparents walked with their children.  What great modeling for these children to see their parents and teachers being physically active and having fun doing it!

WSVX broadcast from the event, adding to the fun!  Healthy Shelby County handed out 260 apples and information about our county’s health and the resources on www.healthyshelbycounty.org.
