Check your region custom website’s news page for a list of all the winners in your area.
Here’s some fantastic preliminary feedback we’ve received from several schools so far:
Fire Up Your Feet has really taken off. The staff participates in Fire Up Your Feet Fridays as much as the kids! It has become a great way to start off our Fridays and we look forward to it each week! Nevada Coordinator, Myrtle Tate Elementary
Fire Up Your Feet benefited our school by regenerating our Walking School Bus. The spring challenge was an opportunity to remind those who used to walk with us at the beginning of the school year to participate AND we also added new participants because of the Fire Up Your Feel Challenge. California Coordinator, Beryl Heights Elementary
It was fun to see members of the faculty and the PTA get creative. One teacher introduced a stationary bicycle to her classroom for students that could not participate in Bike to School Day. Suddenly, all of her kids wanted to participate! –California PTA Parent, Lafayette Elementary
Got a story or feedback to share? Please take a moment to provide us with program feedback by completing our short survey. Individuals completing the survey will be entered into a drawing to win one of three $100 Nike gift cards that support Active Schools.
As we move into summer, be sure to keep moving and keep tracking your activity online for a chance to win even more prizes! Throughout the summer, we will randomly select individuals who continue to track activity for a gift bag filled with goodies from our partners.
On behalf of all our partners, thanks for participating in the 2015 Fire Up Your Feet Spring Challenge. We can’t wait to see how much more you move during our next challenge – October 1 -31, 2015!
