On Friday, 450 students and staff from Parkside Elementary walked four blocks down 8th St. to Goshen College and back to celebrate All Children Exercising Simultaneously Day.
The celebration was part of an overall Health Awareness Week for Goshen Community Schools. All schools invited students to walk somewhere in Goshen this week to promote healthy lifestyles.
Goshen College students, faculty and staff welcomed the Parkside Elementary students to campus with claps and cheers as they arrived, led by the Goshen High School drum line.
Two videos from the celebration are embedded below.
