Health

Knowledge is power.

That’s the message Gibsonburg teacher Steve Reser is trying to get across to people with regard to prostate cancer awareness.
What started out as an idea nine years ago after Reser’s father, Mike, was diagnosed with the illness, has become a local movement – one that has seen the Tiffin non-profit organization, Prostate Cancer Awareness (P.C.A.), gain momentum.

A new initiative has elementary students across nine northwest Ohio counties participating in movement and mindfulness in their classrooms. 

With funding from Mercy Health and Mercy Health - Children’s Hospital, 249 area public and private elementary schools will be using GoNoodle’s online movement videos to get kids running, jumping, dancing, stretching, and participating in calming activities next to their desks.
