On January 26, Wiregrass Ranch High School hosted their second annual Health Stampede to promote healthy choices. The theme this year is Healthy Choices Make a Difference. Teachers were able to sign up to bring their classes during 4th, 5th, and 6th period.

This event was intended to show students how important it is to be healthy. They had many different tables with a variety of health professions including: PT Solutions, Project PUP, the WRHS Medical Academy, Baycare Behavior Health, Madd, and the Florida Department of Health.

“My favorite table had to be the one with the dog. She was so calm and drove around in her little Lexus,” Junior Laura Toro stated.

A BayCare representative for this event who explained the importance of behavioral health.

Students that attended the event were eligible to win prizes by showing they had visited every table on their map and solving a riddle. Prizes included: yoga mats, gym memberships, gift cards to several restaurants, and more.

This event was put on by the SADD club, which promotes wellness and positive decision making among teenagers.

“This event means a lot to me because it is a nice way for other students to go around and not just listen, but to interact with the stands and actually learn things. I enjoyed putting it on,” SADD club Secretatry Lily Troung explained.

Many students attended the Health Stampede this year, and Wiregrass hopes they heard the message that healthy choices do make a difference.

SADD riddles: solve a riddle to receive a prize.
