We could not be more excited – and yes, fired up – to be getting started with a new, national Fire Up Your Feet program. Fire Up Your Feet encourages families, students and schools to work together and create active lifestyles which inspire all children to be healthy and physically active. Centered around the school day, this website provides a full range of age-appropriate resources and educational materials to encourage physical activity to, from and at school. Any school or PTA group in the country can utilize these resources - the most exciting of which is our healthy fundraising program!
Fire Up Your Feet fundraising provides PTAs and school groups a healthy, easy choice for a school fundraisers. It inspires your family, students and teachers to get moving to raise money for the cause of fighting childhood obesity and also make a big different in your school! Most of the money raised through our online system and school events will help your PTA group purchase new gym equipment, bike racks and more to help kids and teachers get active at school. You can learn more at the healthy fundraising tab.
In certain areas around the country, Fire Up Your Feet will help motivate you to create active lifestyles through our Activity Tracking and Challenge Campaigns. Thanks to support from our partner, Kaiser Permanente, we will be helping families and schools walk more, play more and find the joy of being physically active in ten regions of the country.
This is just the beginning for Fire Up Your Feet. We hope to bring the Activity Tracking program to even more regions in the future. Stay tuned here for more details about the steps you can take to start a program in your area. Healthy, happy kids start here – we are so excited, and fired up, to get moving with you.
