Even with a soft launch the Fire Up Your Feet Fall Activity Challenge was a hard fought battle and really helped to build excitement at schools to get active. Truly though all schools and families that participated gained from promoting healthy and active lifestyles. We hope to see some more competition from around the state in the next Challenge… coming May 2014!
Don’t forget! Fire Up Your Feet can be used year round to help your family track your activities. Schools can also use the website for fundraising with an option for people to make donations per walking and biking trip and 75% of donations go directly back into your child’s school to support wellness and active programs!
