This has been a great motivator for my students. It got students who didn't want to participate up and moving to get a certificate. Students who couldn't walk a mile can now jog half a mile and up.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We showed the students the 100 Mile Club incentive package and they got hooked. We include them in the decision-making process and they really like being a part of that.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We have seen a big improvement in the students' cardio. Those who couldn't jog a lap are now jogging half a mile and up. It is great to see their reactions to how much they can do.

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

We make the 100 Mile Club part of our expectations for the year. Once we show the incentive package it gets a majority of the students motivated. There are still some who don't really care about it, but it is only a few.
