MONROE, La. (AP) — A new coalition is providing athletic shoes for 40 children at one Louisiana elementary school. Members learned that children were coming to the office at Barkdull Faulk Elementary School in Monroe, crying because their shoes were too small and hurt their feet, or were falling apart, LSU AgCenter nutrition agent Markaye Russell said in a news release Friday. Those problems made it hard for the children to participate in physical education classes or run and play at recess, she said. Physical activity lowers the risk of obesity, which is a big problem in Louisiana.
