FACT: Only about 8% of schools in South Africa have some form of physical education as part of the curriculum.
This past week 5 000 kids took part in a 50-hour exercise challenge, in an attempt to make a statement about keeping fit and fight childhood obesity, and to get physical education back into our schools! It's cause for celebration!
