Any school, public, private or charter with grades 3 – 12 may participate in the World Fit program. Simply register on line before the start of the World Fit Walk, which normally begins soon after spring break each year and continues for the next 40 days. It is that easy. There is no cost to the school. No additional staffing is required. Walking is normally done during regular school hours, but always supervised on campus by a school staff member.
Once you decide to join the World Fit program, you can help us by identifying a Community Leader, often a volunteer parent from your school and preferably one who embraces physical fitness. We will find an Olympian, a Paralympian or a high level athlete in the family of Olympic sports who will then adopt your school and mentor your students each year.
To become eligible to win the state or national World Fit trophy, your school must have at least 100 total students who register. Students who are home-schooled can also join the World Fit program by registering as Buddies. As a Buddy, a home-schooled student also has the option of donating half of the logged miles to a friend in a registered school.
Please register for World Fit today and spread the word to other schools in your area. Help us eradicate childhood obesity in America.
