Children must become more physically active to ensure a healthier life. To encourage area children to increase activity, Sparrow offers the Feelin’ Good ® Mileage Club ®.
This voluntary program is designed to make exercise fun by offering students in grades PK-6 the chance to walk/run during designated break periods and earn incentives.
The 2014 eight-week program will run from April 7-May 30. During that time, students earn a Toe Token ® (a brightly colored plastic foot charm) for every five miles logged and all students completing 20 miles will earn a specially designed water bottle.
In 2013, about 18,000 mid-Michigan children logged nearly 200,000 miles on their way to better health while earning fun prizes.
The Feelin' Good ® Mileage Club ® was chosen as the 2011 "Best Community-Based Program" in the country by Club Industry, a magazine for fitness business professionals. And, results of a parent survey show kids love participating. Of parents who responded, about 80 percent observed an increase in their child's physical activity.
The Feelin’ Good ® Mileage Club ® is available free of charge to schools in Clinton, Eaton, Gratiot, Ingham, Ionia, Livingston, Montcalm and Shiawassee counties, but will be limited to the first 150 schools to enroll. Participation is limited, so register your school as soon as possible!
