A new tool meant to get kids going arrives on four wheels.
The Madison School & Community Recreation department’s FIT2GO Van carries with it activities like hula hoops, a large-scale building block set, ball-tunneling game and more. MSCR, a branch under the Madison Metropolitan School District, offers many recreation programs for all ages.
The van was out Friday afternoon at Leopold Elementary, getting kids moving and having fun.
Kids jumped through hula hoops, built with large-scale blocks and made a ball tunnel course at the launch celebration from 1:30 p.m. on the Leopold playground on Post Road.
MSCR Executive Director Lucy Chaffin said the FIT2GO van takes fitness and movement to neighborhoods in Madison that need a more active approach to youth programming.
“MSCR sees the FIT2GO van as an excellent tool in fighting the national obesity crisis and getting kids in Madison more active”, Chaffin said.
