Exeter-Milligan Students Walk at School

Exeter-Milligan Junior High and High School along with faculty and staff walked on the track for the last half hour of school

Kindergarteners and first graders enjoyed walking in the neighborhoond for Walk @ Lunch Day

On Wednesday, April 25th, approximately 170 students and staff from both  Exeter-Milligan School sites joined many Nebraska schools and businesses by participating in the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska's sixth annual  Walk @ Lunch Day.    All participants received a "Let's Walk for a Healthier Nebraska!" sticker and a bottle of water.  The 3rd-6th grade students walked a path in Milligan  for 30 minutes, the K-1 students  walked 30 minutes around Exeter, and the 7-12 grade students walked 30 minutes on the school track.
National Walk @ Lunch Day encourages healthy living habits for a lifetime.  Walking is one of the easiest and best ways to get and stay in shape.   With Nebraska's obesity rate nearly doubling the past 15 years, getting regular physical activity is as important as ever.  National Walk at Lunch Day was an opportunity for all  to make a commitment to a healthier Nebraska.
