LIVE HEALTHY IOWA KIDS SEEKS OUT A SCHOOL TO VISIT
Live Healthy Iowa Kids encourages schools to register for their annual Fall Fitness Day event for an opportunity to win a visit from the organization.
AMES, Iowa – Live Healthy Iowa Kids has thrown in a new twist this year on their annual event, Fall Fitness Day. “As we enter into our fifth annual year of offering this free, one-day event to schools and youth organizations, we wanted to add something special to offer our schools.” said Lisa Weber, coordinator for Live Healthy Iowa.
As usual, Fall Fitness Day is an opportunity for schools and youth organizations to get their youth active for an additional 30 minutes that day; all organizations who achieve 100% participation are eligible to win one of five awards, 1-$1,000 and 4-$250. But this year, Live Healthy Iowa Kids decided to up the ante and offer an additional opportunity for schools.
So what is this new opportunity? For all schools that are registered by September 9, they will be entered into a random drawing for an opportunity to win a visit from the state-wide organization. This won’t be just any visit; Live Healthy Iowa Kids will host your Fall Fitness Day event at your school! “The only responsibility the school will have is to make sure all kids are present on October 9 and we will take care of the rest!” said Lisa Weber, coordinator for Live Healthy Iowa.
The eligibility requirements are simple for this opportunity; schools must be registered for Fall Fitness Day by September 9 and able to have the organization host Fall Fitness Day on Wednesday, October 9 at their school.
A word of advice from Lisa, “Get your school registered! This is an exciting opportunity that only one school across the state will receive!”
