The Fourth Grade Challenge Needs You
Last year Heartland Regional Medical Center began a program called ―Fourth Grade Challenge‖ which involves meeting with fourth graders during their physical education class to provide fun and interactive ways of educating these young people about fitness and nutrition. This year the Fourth Grade Challenge is going to be offered at Gene Field Elementary School, and we have the oppor- tunity to provide three-to-five volunteers who will receive the training Heartland offers and then share the program with the kids once a week for eight weeks from January into March. If you would be one of those volunteers, call Pastor Gary at the church office before the end of August.
