The focus on Thursday, Oct. 24, will be on active living and healthy eating.

More than 500 people from Presbyterian Healthcare Services will bring healthy eating and active living activities to 34 of Albuquerque Public Schools’ elementary schools this month.

For the second consecutive year, Presbyterian is partnering with APS and holding a Day of Service to help schoolchildren learn how fun it can be to stay active and eat healthfully.

Presbyterian is New Mexico’s largest nonprofit healthcare organization. The Day of Service is being held on Oct. 24, the organization’s 105th anniversary.

Schools participating are A. Montoya, Adobe Acres, Alameda, Apache, Arroyo Del Oso, Bandelier, Bellehaven, Chelwood, Collet Park, Dolores Gonzales, Double Eagle, East San Jose, Edward Gonzales, Emerson, Georgia O’Keeffe, Governor Bent, Hawthorne, Inez, John Baker, Lavaland, Longfellow, Lowell, MacArthur, Mission Avenue, Monte Vista, Mountain View, North Star, Reginald Chavez, San Antonito, Sandia Base, Sierra Vista, Sombra del Monte, Southwest Learning Center and Sunset View.

“Our Day of Service is an important part of our commitment to improve the health of the patients, members and communities we serve, and we love being able to get out in the schools and encourage kids to make healthy habits a part of their lives,” said Kathy Davis, RN, Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer for Presbyterian.
