5th Gear Kind Program Winner!

A Side Creek Elementary School student is being recognized for his commitment to wellness. Devonte Loyd earned a new bicycle for his participation in the “5th Gear Kids” program. The 10-year-old is the first student to earn a bike since the program started at the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year.

"I got this awesome new BMX bike and I'm really happy,” said Devonte. "You should always work hard - never give up. I feel like the most important person in the world!"

5th Gear Kids is a new wellness program for 5th graders with the goal of building their skills to prevent obesity, improve academic performance and enhance lifelong health. It teaches 5th graders about energy balance and healthy habits by offering incentives and prizes when they make healthy choices with participating community partners.

5th Gear Kids is a collaboration between Aurora Public Schools, the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center, Children’s Hospital Colorado and the Cherry Creek School District. The program is funded by a grant from the Colorado Health Foundation.
