Jimi Fleming, Public Information Officer for Moore Public Schools, said many of the kids in Moore who are still dealing with the effects of the May 20 tornado could find themselves falling into the rap of childhood obesity. But hopefully encouragement from the Thunder will give them a push they may need.
“Everybody handles a crisis and tragedy a little bit differently,” Fleming said. “If there are any of those students who may have become a little bit more sedentary, because of that experience, this is another way of showing them that you get up and move on. We’ve got players on the team that work through injuries. They just don’t sit. They get up and move forward. It’s a great example they’re setting for us.”
