In addition to providing our members with professional development, perspective on legislation, and recognizing teaching excellence, we also strive to help outside the classroom too! Staying active and healthy is something we can all do together.
To help, we’ve created a virtual* 5K run/walk event that brings our community together, taking the important message of fitness, health, and education "to the streets." We hope you'll join us!
Comprehensive healthy literacy curriculum (mind, body and emotion) for K-6th grade, created to “Build A Culture of Health” through our educational system. Offers children the chance to prevent obesity and build the essential foundation for a healthy life.
The mission of the Tennessee Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (TAHPERD) is to promote healthy, physically-active lifestyles for all Tennesseans.
*What is a virtual run?
A virtual run/walk can happen anytime and anywhere, even on a treadmill. It's not about where and when you run. You have complete freedom to choose a time and place convenient for you and can even break up the run as you see fit. You can also run with friends! In fact, we encourage it!
