Hopewell Vikings

Our project is focused on providing Opportunities/Exposure/Engagement of our teenagers here at Hopewell High School. We strongly feel that our students need of exposure to innovative methods to address overall health, wellness and nutrition. Implementing these initiatives will counter the effects of screen time and sedentary lifestyles of many of our teenagers. Our goal is to provide opportunities that will inspire and empower our teens to develop a healthy lifestyle that will jettison them into their future. According to Stephen Ritz, “it is easier to raise healthy children then to fix broken men”.
