Get Fit with TORO


The Houston Texans and Texas Children's Hospital present Get Fit with TORO! In this program, TORO takes over gym class for a 45 minute interactive assembly teaching the importance of fitness and nutrition. The presentation emphasizes full body health through flexibility, building muscular strength, cardiovascular health and proper nutrition; or as we call them the 4 Keys to Fitness. As the students discover each "key", they get closer to solving how to unlock a mysterious chest with a promised prize. Students will experience fun activities throughout the gymnasium that will keep them engaged and moving! After completing all of the activities and learning about how each of the Keys to Fitness contributes to a healthy lifestyle, the chest is unlocked revealing prizes for all of the students in attendance.

Due to the interactive nature of the program, we suggest the show be performed for a single grade level or up to 150 students at a time. If your school is selected as one of our 10 winners, Texas Children's donates two programs so that we can perform the show for two grade levels or audiences. Nominations are accepted for the program year-round. Winners are contacted in December and the shows begin in February. Submit a nomination today for a chance to bring the Get Fit with TORO program from the Houston Texans and Texas Children's Hospital to your school.
