"We just want students to get the most opportunity they can to be active, to be healthy," said Principal Andrew Duncam. "Childhood obesity is a big issue across the country right now and we want to make sure we model to students the importance of healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle."

Ohio Governor John Kasich also declared October "Don't Quit Fitness Month," encouraging students to get up and move.
