I try to make the kids know you don’t have to be a great athlete to be active, Pierce told WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Kim Tunnicliffe. “It’s fun being active and going outside with your friends, playing tag or jump rope.”

The year-long initiative challenges 2,000 kids across the state to set an example for their peers by completing one million hours of physical activity in 2012.
