We have just wrapped up our Achieving Fitness Launch at National AAHPERD conference in Fort Worth TX.
Lot's of fun was had playing "Got-cha">>>>>>>>
All the attendees and exhibitors not only survived but thrived in near tornado's, American Airlines flight delays, construction in and around the convention center and shuttle service that was slower than we liked.
All of us who attended from Project Adventure - Jane Panicucci, Beth Wonson, Bill Bates and Lisa Hunt - had a blast telling everyone about our new Achieving Fitness model and seeing everyone's reaction to the Achieving Fitness Activity Guide, Student Journals and the great presentation by Jane and Lisa. There had to have been 150 people there.
Our Fitness Launch party, co-hosted by Penn State Hershey Center for Nutrition and Activity, Insight Grants, LLC and Flaghouse...was over the top in attendance. We were hoping for 40 or so people. At one point, 165 people were in the room.
Just a few of the guests included Deb Walter - 2007 High School National Teacher of the Year and all of her Teacher of the Year friends (TOYS), NASPE Executive Director Charlene Burgeson, many State AHPERD officers including our friend Ginny Ward from Pennsylvania and others. Many PEP grant award winners past and present. Sylvia Dresser, Executive Director of the Association for Challenge Course Technology. Many of our past and present clients and friends.
And of course, the author's. Lead author- Jane Panicucci with c0-authors Dr. Carolyn Masterson of Montclair University and Lisa Hunt from Project Adventure. (Not present is co-author Ila Prouty).
We look forward to seeing you next year in Tampa and all year long at district and state conferences - as well as those of you who are having Achieving Fitness Professional Development trainings at your school or are coming to one of our open enrollment workshops!
