Support Healthy Kids in DE: Vote in Favor of SB 214

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am writing on behalf of the American Cancer Society in support of SB 214.

Senate Bill 214 (SB 214) will require that beginning in school year 2014-2015, DE public schools must provide a minimum of 150 minutes of physical activity per week for all students in grades k-5.





Current recommendations are for children to engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity per day. Because children spend the majority of their waking hours in schools, schools play a crucial role in providing children opportunities to be physically active. Since they spend half their day in school it is reasonable to require that they get at least 30 minutes per day in the school setting.

Please vote in support of SB 214 for our kids sake.

Sincerely
[Your Name]
