#Pedal4PE Coverage Part 3

February 14, 2018

#Pedal4PE was a first of its kind member outreach project that clearly demonstrated that OPEN walks the walk when claiming to be an organization of "teachers helping teachers".  Co-host Mike Martinez was on location in Baton Rouge, LA with Aaron Hart (Executive Director of OPEN), Kurt Stone (Division Manager of US Games) and several OPEN National Trainers to show love and support for 12 schools over 477 miles and 4 days in the Louisiana Delta.  Participants biked from location to location as National Trainers led students through an hour long assembly of love, laughter, movement and memories!  Tune in to hear some behind the scenes insight from Aaron (@nyaaronhart), Kurt (@USGamesSE), Christina Courtney (@C8462Courtney), Elyse Loughlin (@TheMsLoughlin), Chris Walker (@coachwalk) and Brian Devore (@bdevore7).  These episodes are part of a 3-part series. This episode features various teachers and administrators from day 1 of the tour, as well as Amy Karam from Eat Move Grow.
