How do schools qualify?

Any school, public, private or charter with grades 3–12 may participate in the World Fit program. Simply register online before the start of the World Fit Walk, which normally begins soon after spring break each year and continues for the following 40 days. It’s that easy! There is NO COST to the school and no additional staffing is required. Walking is done during regular school hours, and is always supervised on campus by a school staff member.

Once your school joins the program, World Fit identifies an Olympian or Paralympian to adopt your school and mentor your students each year. World Fit only requires the school to select a Community Leader. Community Leaders are often volunteer parents and preferably individuals who embrace health and physical fitness
To become eligible to win the state or national World Fit trophy, your school must have at least 100 total students who register for World Fit. Students who are home-schooled can also join the World Fit program by registering as Buddies.

Please register for World Fit today and spread the word to other schools in your area. Help us eradicate childhood obesity in America.
