The Scenic Route
"Heading over to a friend’s house? Even if they live right down the street, why not walk around the block to get there? A good 10 minute walk will get your blood flowing and get you closer to going #0to60!" Jaylen W. – ME
"A little bit of sunshine goes a long, long way! If you have the opportunity, take your exercises outdoors instead of staying inside!" Layna R. – DE
"There’s nothing quite like picking fruits and vegetables off of a plant and eating them there on the spot. Start your own healthy garden at your school or at home! You’ll find out quickly how fun it can be to grow your own food." Mateo P. – NE
Weekend Tournament Time
"Set up a weekend sports tournament with your friends and family! Each weekend, get outside and play your favorite sport to get up and get active. Keep track of wins and losses, and at the end of the year, you can present a trophy to the winning team!" Ayobami C. – NC
