Follow in the Fiery Footsteps of Iliahi Elementary
Since the Challenge runs throughout the month of October, you have plenty of time to get your community Fired Up. In fact, during our 2013 Spring Activity Challenge, Hawaii Fire Up Your Feet Challenge winner Iliahi Elementary was able to get the word out in less than two weeks! Thanks to the leadership of one motivated coordinator, Special Education Teacher and School Wellness Chairperson Jon Acohido, 55 students, parents and staff registered. Fire Up Your Feet materials were posted on the parent and school bulletin board and staff were sent out daily activity reminders, even starting a walking club that met twice a week!
Ignite your imagination
Iliahi used their award to purchase health curriculums and other materials. Image what a Fire Up Your Feet Challenge Award could be used for in your school community. Feet charms or stickers for monthly or weekly Walk to School Day participants? A healthy field trip? zumba classes, or to host a local chef to demonstrate healthy snack preparation at a parent night? Follow Iliahi’s example and spread the word about how easy it is to promote 60 minutes of daily energetic movement with Fire Up Your Feet.
