Viktor Viking travels to Pierz to teach kids about Fuel Up to Play 60

ViktorViktor, the Vikings football team mascot, visited students at Holy Trinity School in Pierz Wednesday, as part of the Fuel Up to Play 60 program. The program is a school wellness program through the National Dairy Council, Midwest Dairy Council and the National Football League, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It is designed to teach and encourage students to eat healthy, nutritious foods and to play and be active for 60 minutes each day. Holy Trinity Principal Debra Meyer-Myrum said she’d been receiving literature for months, and when the school received a grant from Coborn’s and Midwest Dairy Association to be used for healthy eating and physical activity, she and the staff decided to take part in the Fuel Up to Play 60 program. Pictured going out for a pass from Viktor is Mason Zajac, while McKenzey Peine, stands by. Sitting on the floor looking on are front row: Echo Janski, left, and Hailey Gall. Second row (from left): Erica Rudolph, Kadynce Theis and Bryce LeBlanc. Third row: Braden LeBlanc. Fourth row: Kaden Kroll and Laila Bell. Fifth row: Joey Stuckmayer. Holy Trinity joins more than 73,000 schools across the county that now take part in the Fuel Up for 60 program, including more than 12,000 schools in the Midwest.
