Greenbrier County Kids Walk the Line For Fitness

Greenbrier County (WVVA) -- Students in Greenbrier County walked the line for fitness on Tuesday.

Thrill-seekers from the nationally renowned Gibbon Slackline Company were at Eastern Greenbrier Middle School and Western Greenbrier Middle School to teach kids how to slackline. It is a tight-rope and trampoline put together that is often used for acrobatics.  

Funding for the training was provided by the Choices grant, a federal PEP grant designed to encourage kids to get excited about fitness.

In addition to the slackline training, teachers are rewriting their curriculum to incorporate mountain biking, archery, gardening, healthy cooking, and rock climbing. The students may also select PE activities that they wish to excel in and take them as an after school club.
