Highlands Elementary students welcome Pro-Cyclist Jonny Clark

Professional cyclist, Jonny Clark, speaks to students at Highlands Elementary School.

As part of UnitedHealthcare’s Activate 4 Kids Program, Pro-cyclist Jonny Clark visited youngsters at Highlands Elementary School to speak about the importance of healthy eating, staying active, and practicing bicycle safety.

Clark, who rides for UnitedHealthcare’s Professional Cycling Team, is a native of Melbourne, Australia and is known for doing whatever it takes to help his team win races. He spoke to students about his life as a professional athlete and showed off his bike and safety gear. He also reminded students that hard work and dedication can help them achieve success in all areas of their lives.

As an added treat, UnitedHeathcare donated bike helmets, safety reflectors, bike safety handbooks and water bottles to distribute to students for use during their Walk/Bike to School Day on October 9.
