Temecula Valley Educators Association (TVEA) is launching our 2nd Annual Fun2BFit Day. As educators, we are continually encouraging wellness with our students. This year’s event will be held on April 16, 2016 at the brand new Temecula Valley High School stadium. The community will have the chance to see firsthand how some of our local Measure Y fund money has been used to update the high school stadium. In an ongoing attempt to achieve our goal of promoting health and wellness among our students and parents, we are inviting parents, businesses, community members, and students to register for this day’s events. The day will entail having a 5K Run for adults and students middle school years and older, with the course set up throughout the TVHS campus. In addition, there will be various Field Events for elementary aged students. There will be a separate registration for each event.
Educators throughout the district will be volunteering to ensure this event is a huge success. It is our hope that you will join us, come together as a community, and collaborate for an unforgettable day.
*The Fun2BFit event is free to participants. However, donations are appreciated and will be accepted on the day of the event. *All donations will go to the TVEA Scholarship Fund to provide scholarships to Seniors graduating from Temecula Unified School District

Physical Activity for Children
Activity level or lack of physical fitness contributes to problems such as obesity and may also lead to absenteeism and lower test scores. Nearly one third of American children are overweight or obese according to U.S. Census Bureau reports. In addition, the American Psychological Association has found a direct, positive, correlation between healthy, physically fit children, and higher reading and math scores. Increased aerobic activity helps children better focus as well as multitask in their busy lives today.
