STEP 1: COPY the following letter, and proceed to Step 2.
I join with fitness icon, RICHARD SIMMONS, in respectfully asking that you first, support the SENATE HELP Committee's reauthorization draft of NCLB, which names Physical Education as a CORE SUBJECT, giving States and Districts the flexibility to use existing funding for programming. And second, respectfully ask that you likewise support HR2013, and S1075, The FIT Kids Act, which secures PEP grant funding specific to PE and Physical Activity, as well as requires programming accountability for parents and authorities
Research shows that FIT KIDS are more healthy, more focused, more ready to learn,notably achieving higher scores in mathematics, and have greater self-esteem.Healthcare costs related to Obesity are projected to reach $344 billion by 2018.
Please use your power to increase PHYSICAL ACTIVITY in schools, rather than eliminate it. Thank you.
