Ready, Set, Gold!

Today, I joined Mayor Villaraigosa, School Board President Marlene Canter, the Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games (SCCOG) and the Southern California Olympians to launch the Ready, Set, Gold! pilot program at Coeur d' Alene Elementary School in Venice.

Ready, Set, Gold! is a youth fitness program that helps youth set and meet health goals. The program, designed in part to complement Fitnessgram, a state mandated fitness program for youth, was created to inspire, motivate, and educate students about health and fitness. The program pairs 30 Olympic and Paralympic athletes with 30 schools within LAUSD. Each Olympian and Paralympian will visit the adopted school's physical education classes five times during the school year to promote healthy living and active lifestyles.

I would like to thank the Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games and the Southern California Olympians for partnering with the City of Los Angeles to ensure that our children learn the importance of fitness and nutrition. I hope to see many more schools in the 11th district participate in this wonderful program.
