Northern Potter High School Gets $7,850. Grant For Winter Sports Program

Northern Potter High School awarded a grant through the Highmark Healthy High 5 School Challenge

Ulysses, PA May 4, 2011 – Northern Potter High School has been awarded a Highmark Healthy High 5 School Challenge grant of $7,850 to implement a Winter Sports Program that will provide students with enhanced nutrition education and fitness education. With rates of childhood obesity on the rise, this grant will support Northern Potter High School’s efforts to help students adopt healthy behaviors that will stay with them for a lifetime.

This will provide seventh and eighth grade students with the opportunity to go to Ski Denton. It will also provide cross country skis and snowshoes for physical education classes.

Since 2007, the Highmark Foundation, through the Highmark Healthy High 5 School Challenge, has awarded more than $8 million to over 945 grants to schools in 49 counties across Pennsylvania for programs that provide nutrition education, enhance nutrition choices and increase opportunities for physical activity.

“Physical activity and nutrition play a critical role in reducing childhood obesity,” said Yvonne Cook, president of the Highmark Foundation. “With this grant, Northern Potter High School will have additional resources available to educate students-and their parents-on simple lifestyle changes that can be made to improve the health and wellbeing of our children.”
