Looks like a good opportunity to pass on to your colleagues…
With the goal of empowering school age children nationwide with the means to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle, ING Run For Something Better (ING RFSB), in partnership with the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE), has developed a school-based running program. In addition to fighting childhood obesity, research shows that physical activity improves self-esteem, school performance and overall wellbeing.
The awards program will provide a minimum of fifty (50) grants up to $2,500 for each school that desires to establish a school based running program or expand an existing one. Through activity plans created by NASPE and based on the National Standards for Physical Education (NASPE, 2004), the awards program will offer children a healthy start to life and foster their desire to exercise before obesity ever begins. To ensure impartiality, NASPE will manage the 2013 School Awards Program for ING U.S.
If you are ready to make an impact on the lives of your students through healthy lifestyle changes, improving self-esteem and reducing the rate of childhood obesity, then step up to the starting line!
The deadline in May 15, 2013. Good luck!
