Every Body Walk! Campaign
NiCole Keith is a professor that walks her talk…literally. As an associate professor in the department of Physical Education, she is passionate about getting people moving and exercising for better health. She even walks her talk by keeping a Trek Desk in her office … a desk that fits over a treadmill machine.
Keith is also passionate about reaching out to the community with her expertise. She is a founder of the acclaimed PARCS program, Physically Active Residential Communities and Schools (formerly Fit for Life). This collaboration between Indianapolis Public Schools and the School of Physical Education and Tourism Management provides a fitness center manned by physical education students and supervised by IUPUI faculty at three area high schools. The fitness center services are available to IPS students, parents, teachers, and community members during after school and evening hours. Since its inception in 2005 it has impacted the health of over 10,000 clients
