This summer, Cindy Kuhrasch, PETE program Director, has been doing amazing work keeping our students and community engaged and active through a series called “PE at home”. Cindy and her students post videos on Facebook that demonstrate fun, equipment-free activities that families can engage in together to foster physical, emotional, and mental well-being.
In the UW-Madison’s Summer Blog they write, “While the pandemic prompted her to create the Facebook videos, the underlying inspiration for them has long guided [Cindy’s] career. Through volunteer work with the Boys & Girls Club, she learned that many children grow up with limited access to physical-activity equipment and don’t receive enough encouragement to play. ‘They needed quality physical activities that they could do on their own,’ she says.”
