Below is a DHEC media release regarding our work with SC FitnessGram and our most recent data report showing a decline in students’ health and fitness during COVID. We have developed onepagers with tips for SchoolsCommunity Leaders, and Families  on how to address this data by increasing opportunities for physical activity. These resources are hyperlinked and I have also attached the family onepager. Please share this and the media release with your networks. Please specifically ask them to share the family resource with the families they serve.
