OKLAHOMA CITY (March 11, 2021) – Shape Your Future, a program of the Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust (TSET), is partnering with Healthy Schools OK to bring free physical activity videos to Oklahoma families hoping to stay active during spring break.

That’s why we’re offering free resources consisting of healthy, family-friendly recipes, fun physical activity ideas, interactive videos and more!
“It has been a whirlwind year, and it’s more important than ever to prioritize your health and your family’s health,” said Julie Bisbee, TSET executive director. "Getting started can be the biggest challenge. That’s why TSET and our partners at Healthy Schools OK are making it easier for Oklahoma families to move more and eat better. Check out the free resources focused on physical activity and healthy eating through Shape Your Future and get the tools you need to make the healthy choice the easy choice.”
“Healthy Schools OK is excited to continue partnering with TSET and the Shape Your Future program to provide physical activity videos for Oklahoma families,” said Lindsi Lemons, Healthy Schools OK executive director. “As we welcome a new season, we hope these videos encourage families to get outside, get active and enjoy the sunshine.

SYF was developed in 2011 by the Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust (TSET) and the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH). It provides simple messaging for moms and influencers in the lives of children to eat more fruits and vegetables and to be more physically active to improve overall health. SYF strives to educate parents, teachers, caregivers and all Oklahomans on how to make the healthy choice the easy choice.
TSET’s partner, Healthy Schools OK (HSOK), promotes and maintains healthy lifestyle choices in Oklahoma through preventive, community-based, school health education programs for students, their families and faculty.

HSOK uses a highly collaborative private-public structure that multiples and magnifies resources such as volunteers, information, funding and ongoing support services. HSOK is funded in part by a grant from the Oklahoma State Medical Association Foundation.
