Get up and Go

Advisor

Frank Dobson
Director, Black Cultural Center

Project Description

Get up and Go will use various means to explain the benefits of proper nutrition and exercise to inner city children. We will partner with Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital’s Veggie Project. In addition to partnering with this organization, we will develop our own instructional exercise video. Beyond focusing on the health of inner city children, group members will also participate in activities for personal health. These include nutrition classes, personalized workout routines, and healthy lodge meals. Lastly, Get up and Go will work with the recreation center to publicize campus events that encourage healthy eating and exercise choices.
