In order to register as a student in the World Fit Walk, your school must first be registered. Once your school is registered, so long as you are in a grade that is approved by your school to participate, you will be automatically registered for the Walk. For now, grades that are allowed to participate are 3 through 12, even though most schools are middle schools.
Once you are registered, you will be assigned a familiar username and password. Please remember them, but if you forget, your teacher can retrieve them for you. You will use those during the six-week Walk and can continue to log in your miles after the Walk for the remainder of the year, using the same username and password. World Fit will track your miles for you the entire time.
If you are home schooled, you can still register for World Fit as a Buddy. You can log in walking miles by either walking with a pedometer, walking on a prescribed course of known length or by counting walking as a sport. Sport credit miles are entered the same way as the other students and are derived by the time of participation and the category of sport. As a World Fit Buddy you also have the option of donating half of your logged miles to a student in one of the participating World Fit schools. If you are a home-schooled student and you complete a minimum of 60 miles logged in 40 days, email us and we will send you a World Fit certificate signed by an Olympian. If you reach 120 miles logged in 40 days, we will mail you the World Fit certificate and the President’s Active Lifestyle Award certificate.
