On September 26, 12 MHS FCCLA FUTP 60 team members lead a Park Walk during the Hardy County Heritage Weekend Festival. 15 elementary students and five parents/grandparents participated. For each mile walked, participants signed a "mile ball" for the 100 Mile Club Tube. Yogurt and water was served as a refreshment break. Participants made "snack bags" with white lunch size bags, FUTP 60 stickers, and filled their bags with brochures and recipes for "Snacks On the Go." FUTP 60 Frisbees and shirts were given as prizes from a drawing.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The MHS FCCLA FUTP 60 team planned the activity and provided leadership. Students and parents/grandparents participated in the guided walk and "Snack Bag" craft/educational activity.

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

MHS FCCLA FUTP60 Team is sponsoring monthly Walk activities and weekly challenges to encourage students to walk and log their mileage. The team is planning an indoor path to sustain the activity during bad weather.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

MHS FCCLA FUTP 60 team - 100 Mile Club is finding it difficult to recruit members outside of our classes. The team leadership is challenging the FFA and FBLA students to get involved. The 10th grade health class students are joining in January.
