The Presidential Youth Fitness Program is a school-based program that promotes health and regular physical activity for our youth. It offers educators access to a health-related assessment for youth fitness, professional development for meaningful implementation, and motivational recognition to empower students to adopt and maintain an active lifestyle. The program has been in existence since 1966.

At PBE, students took part in the running program and had to qualify with specific times in order to make it to the finals. Qualifying times were different for each age group. Congratulations to all who participated and all who won. Keep running!
