World Fit Walking Challenge

The 300+ students participating in the World Fit Walking Competition have completed over 8000 miles in the first two weeks of walking.  25 students have completed more than 100 miles (when accounting for miles from other physical activities and donated miles from family and friends).  Two students from Team Triumph have accumulated well over 200 miles.  Keep up the good work.

News from Fuel Up to Play 60

My name is Abigail. I'm in 8th grade in Dynamic Design. I am a Fuel Up To Play 60  National Ambassador and Panelist.I got to be one through filling out an application to be a Natioinal Ambassador in January.

The Fuel Up To Play 60 team emailed me in March asking me if I had any interest in being part of a team of 30 panelists who attend webinars and call-in meetings. It's really fun to be National Panelist for Fuel Up To Play 60. I get to contribute all my ideas on current events going on in this organization.  The last meeting/webinar I attended included topics ranging from a logo for Quaker Products to a new dashboard for the Fuel Up To Play 60 website. My next one is coming up and I have many thoughts and ideas I will be contributing to the conversation.
