Ritchie County teachers and students were VERY EXCITED to welcome two former WVU football stars and a Hall of Fame Coach on Thursday to teach the kids the importance of having an active and healthy lifestyle. Don Nehlen spoke alongside Aaron Beasley and Jimmy Gary, motivating kids to eat healthy and stay active! The Mountaineers are "teaming" up with the 'nPlay Foundation to help fight childhoold obesity. Following the kickoff, Beasley and Gary joined the students to participate in a demonstration of the HopSports ~ Brain Breaks ~ program. This program is designed to get students up and moving for short periods of time throughout the day to help improve mind and body connections, as well as promote physical activity.
