Kurriosity is in the Windy City of Chicago, Illinois on assignment.

We are covering the launch of Free-2-Play, a non profit program from the Gray Institute, designed to change the future of physical education in schools coast-to-coast. I have met some of the most amazing and inspiring coaches who are working together to on this special project to change the health of future generations of children around the world.

Over the past five weeks, the Gray Institute has been working on a "beta test" of the program with fifth grade student in Chicago and the results are amazing.

Instead of traditional PE class (that we all went through)these children actually work together with each other to motivate and inspire everyone in the class. I have worked with children on fitness programs for years--this is the first time I have ever seen every child in a class believe they are actually an athlete.

This has been such a humbling and eye-opening experience and I can't wait to write this story for all of you to see what this amazing program will accomplish to redesign every physical education program in the country.

Watch for my special report on "Free-2-Play next week---only on Kurriosity and KTV. Back to the conference!
