Students Receive Shoes and Socks to Promote Healthy Living

April 11, 2017 – In support of their “Healthy Comets 4 Life” campaign, the students at Casa Loma Elementary Received complimentary socks and shoes to promote healthy living and exercise.  Each student received a pair of shoes donated by Dignity Health and a pair of socks donated by the Patel Foundation and California State University, Bakersfield.

Volunteers visited every classroom on the Casa Loma campus carrying large bags of socks and shoes to be distributed to students who very excitedly accepted the gifts.  Children had their name called, received their sock and shoes and were reminded to “play 60 minutes a day.”

Students have been walking around the school’s outdoor track on a daily basis as part of the “Healthy Comets 4 Life” campaign.  The students have the opportunity to log their steps to keep track of how far they have walked, and are encouraged to do more outdoor activities as part of an overall healthy lifestyle.

Special thanks goes out to our community partners for their donation. For more pictures, CLICK HERE.
