Sport Stacking at Brookshire Elementary

On Friday, December 1, Brookshire PE classes practiced sport stacking. This is an official AAA Junior Olympic sport consisting of stacking cups for speed. Students learned the 3-3-3 pattern, and were introduced to two other patterns used in competitive sport stacking.

Following the sport stacking lessons in PE, students and families were given the opportunity to purchase Speed Stacks to practice at home.  This healthy fundraiser will give Brookshire Elementary 20% of sales for PE supplies.

Tori Sheahan Walk ‘n Talk for Life

The legacy of pediatric nurse practitioner Tori Sheahan–a consummate caretaker and champion for the health of local youth–was honored by establishing a memorial fund in her name to provide medical supplies and health education resources to the school based health centers in Winter Park, Maitland and Eatonville.

Tori always stressed exercise by walking for conflict resolution and problem solving, as well as to promote a healthy life style. The Winter Park Health Foundation (WPHF), Winter Park Consortium of Schools with Lion’s Pride Fund and American Cancer Society have joined together to create the Tori Sheahan Walk N’ Talk for Life to continue to support the memorial fund. The first walk is scheduled for Saturday, January 7th, 2017.

The Walk ‘n Talk for Life aims to go beyond traditional race models. Rather than just walk to raise money, this unique model aims to engage friends and families in a fitness initiative that instills a life-long healthy way of living by having brief talking points, intermittently, along the route.

 

Walk Details

  • Open to the public
  • Location:  Harbor Park in Baldwin Park
  • Date:  January 7 at 9:00 AM
  • Time:  Registration begins at 8:00 am, Walk begins at 9 am

About Tori Sheahan
Born in Virginia Beach, VA in 1969, Ms. Sheahan obtained a registered nurse (RN) degree from Riverside Hospital in Newport News, VA and then a bachelor of nursing degree from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA. She later obtained a Pediatric Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP) degree through the University of Florida. She worked with Healthcare Providers of Florida—a group of nurse practitioners providing school-based health care for the underserved in Central Florida, since 2000, serving as vice president since 2008.

As the School Nursing Initiative Coordinator for WPHF, Ms. Sheahan helped supervise, mentor and support school nurses in the Winter Park Consortium of Schools, and she also staffed the Glenridge Middle School-Based Health Center. She went to any length required to make sure her patients got the care, medicine, education and social services they needed.

She was married and her two children are now both in college. She left a legacy of kindness and compassion. She has been profoundly missed.
