Our fast pace American lifestyle has played havoc on the health and fitness of our youth. Three years ago, I made a commitment to work to promote youth health and fitness in my community. That same year, I completed my Fitness Funtastics Program Booklet and the following year, worked to get it into the hands of the Conway Elementary Schools as well as into the hands of the Directors of the Arkanasas Board of Education. That year, I also founded the Boys and Girls Club Cheer 'N' Dance Squad and committed to work with that group until I complete high school in 2009. While the Conway Public School project and the Boys and Girls Club project are my two main areas of focus, I also promote my platform aby "living it" and speaking to groups about it as I have the opportunity. This year, I have spoke at every school level in the Conway Public School system---elementary, middle, junior high, and high school. This year, I have particularly focused my energies in the Boys and Girls Club as there is so much need there. I have volunteered with both the Westside Boys and Girls Club and the Main Boys and Girls Club weekly to teach a committed group of children cheer and dance routines. My application for the Do Something Brick Award is to secure support and funding for a major project at the Boys and Girls Club. This project involves actually producing and distributing an exercise DVD that will go out to all Boys and Girls Clubs throughout the United States. The children at the Boys and Girls Club are learning choreography and routines for the DVD. We have designed matching t-shirts and a bold backdrop to use in the recording as well as music. There are over 3300 Boys and Girls Clubs in the United States that this project would send DVD's out to. Boys and Girls Clubs throughout the United States draw many disadvantaged youth and this program would be an example of how young people can work to make a difference and positively affect their community and our nation.
