      Get outside and exercise

      Some students in Ishpeming Township were all ACES Wednesday. Children from Aspen Ridge participated in the National All Children Exercising Simultaneously Day. The students all walked together around the school led by the Ishpeming Township Fire Department.

      This year a bike ride was added. Around 30 students rode their bikes to school this morning in addition to the walk around Aspen Ridge.

      "We had police escorts to help us at some of the trouble spots. It was an awesome event for this morning and it's actually something that we might start doing once a week just to get kids active in doing something outside," said Ryan Reichel, Physical Education teacher at Aspen Ridge.

      The goal of ACES is to help show that exercising is fun and to convince children to step away from the TV screen.
