Winding down a summer of active learning and physical fitness, LVCC brought together nine of our sites for a field day at the Emmaus Community Park. Over 140 children, ages 5-12, enjoyed a day chock-full of fun and sportsmanship. The children ran, jumped, skipped, tugged and cheered with their teammates in a series of relays.
Many of the relay races required focus on balance and speed to prevent dropping plastic eggs, blocks or pizza boxes. One activity station had the children working together to capture the other team flags. A tug-of-war tournament concluded the day's activities.
LVCC's physical education teacher, Brandi Stettler, supervised the event as referee.
Funding from Two Rivers Health and Wellness Foundation., Dexter F. and Dorothy H. Baker Foundation, and AmeriHealth Caritas made the summer physical fitness program possible. Our friends from Aetna and Pocono Mountain Dairies supplied refreshing beverages on field day.
