During past semesters, exercise leaders from the ISU ExerCYse is Medicine Club have hosted ExerCYse Time on the Iowa State University campus in the Forker building (home of ISU's Kinesiology Department) on Friday evenings. The ExerCYse Time events in the Forker building hosted an average of 10-15 children each week.
This year, ExerCYse is Medicine has partnered up with the Ames Community School District to bring ExerCYse Time closer to the students in the Ames area. Additionally, ExerCYse is Medicine partnered with the Student-Athlete Affairs Coordinator in order to bring ISU student-athletes on as volunteers for ExerCYse Time. All children grades K-8 are welcome to attend each weekly ExerCYse Time session at whichever Ames elementary school gym it is being hosted at during any given week to enjoy an hour of fun and FREE exercise activities with ISU athletes and exercise volunteers. You can see the schedule of gym locations below.
I managed to snap a couple pictures on my smart phone while I was watching the children play a few rounds of "Sharks and Minnows." See images below.
