Family Fitness Night Draws Big Crowd



Topeka Public Schools’ annual Family Fitness Fun Night continues to attract more and more people.  The health and fitness event held on September 12th drew more than 1,500 people to Hummer Sports Park.  Nearly every school had a booth promoting healthy activities and exercise.  A number of health-related organizations and businesses had a table set up where they dispersed information or handed out flyers about a healthy life-style.   While some people walked around the track, kids were bouncing on a big ball, jumping rope, swinging a plastic golf club or playing under a colorful umbrella.  There were performances from high school dance teams and fitness demonstrations by ROTC students.  The fun event is one of the many ways that Topeka Public Schools encourages its staff, students and parents to live a healthy life-style.
