“Everyday I have kids tell me what they have
done the day before to total 60 minutes of physical activity”, says Mrs.
Murray. The challenge is being offered
through SPARK, a physical education company that offers programs and equipment
to schools and daycares, to help fight inactivity and obesity in children. SPARK is awarding a grand prize of $25,000 to
the school who meets all the criteria listed: number of students participating
and completing, number of posts on social media sites, and how the school will
keep the challenge going after completing the 25 days. Two runner-up prizes
will be awarded as well. W.A. Young is
hoping to be one of those lucky schools!
