Charge Up the Miles - Healthiest State Initiative

By

Topics:
Physical Activity Participation,  Teamwork

Our student leadership group wanted our Kickoff event to coincide with Iowa Healthiest State Initiative. We organized with University of Northern Iowa to have their students athletes come out and walk with us as at school. They also spoke to the student body about eating healthy and being physically active. The goal was to walk 120 miles as a school - we walked 202 miles!!!

How did you accomplish your goals?

Our students made videos announcing the Kickoff event and the college athletes that would be attending. We created posters and signs and placed them all over the school to build excitement.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

The students enjoyed walking and listening to the student athletes. Many students did more than one lap around the track. With all the excitement, we decided our Play will be the 100 Mile Club.
