The Fire Up Your Feet Activity Challenge is a program that offers new opportunities for physical activity before, during and after school for students and families. Participating in the challenge is easy, simply log any type of physical activity: yoga, gardening, P.E., dance, biking, walking, anything active! This spring, K-8 schools can win cash awards to support physical activity and health programs.
