Fall Into Fitness

The Electric Slide, zumba, double dutch, and even some old school push-ups all came together on November 14, 2012 at the first-ever Alternative Schools Network Health Expo: Fall into Fitness. Vendors and providers from across the city shared information with students from 15 schools. Two hundred and four students registered online for the event, and nearly every one of them came, packing the Expo Center IIT Hermann Hall.

Why is he here in the cafeteria?
