Date:1/18/2010

HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Be active to stay healthy is the message that Capital BlueCross and the Pennsylvania Department of Health are conveying to middle school-aged children throughout the region with a grant program called Active Schools. The statewide program kicks off locally at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 20 at the Steelton-Highspire school gymnasium. Steelton-Highspire Middle School is an Active Schools grant recipient.

The press conference will feature remarks from keynote speaker Dr. Andy Baldwin. Doctor Baldwin, who appeared on the television show The Bachelor, serves in the Navy as a physician and recently completed a 415-mile bicycle tour across Pennsylvania visiting schools and promoting a healthy lifestyle for children. He will talk about the importance of incorporating good nutrition and plenty of activity into a daily routine at an early age.

Steelton-Highspire School District Superintendent Dr. Deborah Wortham, Capital BlueCross President & CEO Bill Lehr and Department of Health Chief of Staff Don Morabito will also make remarks.

Active Schools is a grant program that allows selected schools to implement year-long programs encouraging students to engage in physical activity at least 30 minutes each day. The $15,000 per school grants are funded by Capital BlueCross and the Department of Health.

With its grant money, Steelton-High Spire is getting a fitness center from Project Fit America. The fitness center is set to arrive by the end of January and features an outdoor fitness course and mobile indoor exercise equipment.
