CTKG Reese Challenges Kids to Spend Time Outside this Summer
CTKG Reese wants Connecticut students to go outside, increase their endorphins, and be more positive this summer! To achieve this step of her Be Positive: Pandemic Perseverance platform, she created an Outdoors-A-Thon activity challenge for her constituents to do this summer. Her goal is to improve the mental and physical health of Connecticut’s kids during the pandemic.
Visit Reese’s Outdoors-A-Thon page for summer activity ideas and to download the Activity Tracker spreadsheet. Reese’s constituents – current 5th graders – are invited to submit their total number of summer activities and minutes spent outside by Tuesday, August 31, 2021!
