“The experts at Nationwide Children’s Hospital developed Time For 10! with the health and fitness of Ohio’s children in mind. We’ve accomplished everything we set out to do: make it easy, make it efficient, make it fun—and make it free.” - Karen Kasich, Ohio First Lady
A collaboration between Nationwide Children's Hospital and Ohio First Lady Karen W. Kasich, Time For 10! is a series of five, ten-minute exercise videos designed for daily use in K-5 classrooms. The program seeks to make guided exercise easy and accessible to Ohio schools, thereby improving students’ health and classroom productivity.
Time For 10! is a simple tool for schools to increase students' physical activity through small increments of exercise, in a way that is manageable and constructive—providing benefits inside and outside the classroom.
The program is available in three options:
Ohio First Lady Karen W. Kasich is committed to encouraging daily physical activity in Ohio classrooms. Nationwide Children’s Hospital shares this commitment and focuses on combatting childhood obesity through the Wellness Promotion aspect of our Strategic Plan.
We would like to extend a special thank you to the students from After-School All-Stars Ohio for their Time For 10! participation.
