How Does This....
Right On Track, a nonprofit established in 2021, has the mission of enhancing the common public high school track with strength-training equipment, and then designating the area, during non-school and non-practice hours, as the neighborhood's free outdoor gym.
With doctors of physical therapy and other healthcare/fitness professionals offering education on how to make best use of the track and equipment, we have a more physically, emotionally, and socially healthy neighborhood.
How We Got Here
WT White High School in Dallas, Texas is the first public high school to welcome this Right On Track project. Before school begins, and in those after-dinner hours, local neighbors make great use of the track and strength-training area, which has been named The Wellness Connection. This is a place where neighbors not only build aerobic endurance and increase/preserve muscle mass, but also improve balance, agility, coordination, and flexibility. And, equally important, they are meeting up with friends and making new ones. Simply put, it's the practice of lifestyle medicine.
Kuddos to Dallas Independent School District for working with the neighbors to help create the first Right On Track site. DISD realized the win-win potential of Right On Track...the school gains a campus improvement, namely more space and additional training options for their sports teams and PE classes; the neighbors gain a free outdoor gym just walking distance away; and the relationship between school and community grows in a positive manner.
Right On Track is ready to help other public high schools and their surrounding neighborhoods create their free outdoor gym.
