July/August 2012 - Sheri Lauritano, Councilmember

Goodyear, Let's Move!

As we move into the dog days of summer and into fall it is important to get moving and healthy. Goodyear has plenty of opportunities to get active. Over the past several years Arizona in Action, led by Jennifer Barber, has spearheaded health and fitness programs in our schools and throughout our city. Estrella and Westar Elementary Schools no longer sell cookie dough to raise funds, but have the students participate in a Move-A-Thon where the kids can earn pledges from friends and family members to participate in fun and healthy activities.

They also encourage kids to bike, scooter and skate to school, but have made the students and parents aware of the importance of wearing helmets through their Lids on Kids program, arizonainaction.org

The Southwest Valley YMCA has great pool and fitness programs for the whole family. They offer swim lessons for all ages as well as ZUMBA classes and a large cardio area. Check out the Jump Start program for well-rounded health and fitness at www.valleyymca.org/southwestvalley

For the extreme sports lovers, the City of Goodyear offers opportunities as well. The skate park at Goodyear Community Park is a great place to work on your moves. Goodyear also has an up and coming BMX track. AZ PRO TRAC, located off of Estrella Parkway, is where the entire family can enjoy a race. Keep in mind it?s not just for kids. Girls, boys and adults of all ages participate. Stop by and see the fun at www.azprotrac.com
