Power Up!, targets third and fourth grade children and with the help of the community teaches them the importance of being healthy and developing healthy habits. Power Up! partners with The Boys and Girls Club of Garden Grove, Chapman Athletics, the American Heart Association, the Children's Hospital of Orange County, Sapphire Laguna, Cal State Fullerton's ROTC program, and the Garden Grove Fire and Police Departments. For five consecutive school days, the Chapman Power Up! team spent one hour with 50 children, implementing their campaign in hope of creating lasting change in the lives' of children.
Power Up!'s first day of the program began with much excitement as children from the Boys and Girls Club of Garden Grove's after-school program at Morningside Elementary learned about Michelle Obama's My Plate from Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) pediatrician, played fun food fact games, and learned the Power Up! cheer. The day concluded with the signing of a pledge to live a healthy lifestyle.
