The Mary Rutan Hospital Power Up 4 Fitness Team recently presented information at ILES on positive ways to live, including the importance of heart health and 
the risks of using tobacco products. 
Respiratory Therapists unveiled a pair of healthy pig lungs and a pair of lungs damaged from smoking for 4th graders. After detailing the harm smoking can do, leaving tar in the lungs and often leading to lung diseases or cancer, they discussed the dangers of vaping. 
Wellness Coordinators explained how to keep your heart pumping properly by making healthy food choices.  
Registered Nurse Deb Orr led groups in fun types of movement in the pods.  Orr encouraged fourth graders to make memories with friends by being active instead of sitting on their phones all the time. She taught them how to play "kick the can" outside. 
Finally, 4th graders got Power Up 4 Fitness cinch sacks full of resources to take home.
