The Healthy Kids Spring Step It Up Challenge is a no-cost, turnkey step program for Ohio based schools. Create and register a team made up of employees, colleagues, or parents of the student body. You need a minimum of three participants.
“This is a great opportunity for school districts to lead by example, bond with team members, and improve individual health,” said Patty Starr, President & CEO. “In addition to the obvious health benefits, teams can win money for health and wellness programs by stepping.”
Teams will be competing against each other for valuable prizes. Steps will also go towards unlocking activity kits for Ronald McDonald House Charities.
