Casey school offers expanded fitness program
Mt. Vernon Register-News
MT. VERNON — — Thanks to the recent Casey Middle School renovation, educators there have created an expanded fitness program for students.
Frank Been's insight:

Getting people started in health and fitness early helps to prevent early-onset (juvenile) diabetes and other health realated concerns, involving a sedentary lifestyle.  Offering these kids a facility with a wide range of activites, provides them with options to partake, as oppose to excuses to sit out, of exercises and class participation.
