Bruins Movin’ is a project designed to develop habits of physical activity and healthy living of young students through the facilitation of short physical activity breaks; our project aims to empower UCLA students to develop active leadership and promote health and wellness in their communities.
With the support from CPOSA, UCLA Recreation, and the UCLA TIE-INS program, [FITTED] has developed Bruins Movin’ to inspire active lifestyles among elementary students whose physical activity programs have been cut or are non-existent. The program facilitates thirty-minute fun, physical activities for all elementary students (grades 1-5) at Brockton and Nora Sterry Elementary Schools during their active lunch period. We also build relationships with these students in order to positively influence them into adapting healthy lifestyles. We equip volunteers with the ability to be active role models on campus and within the community.
