Miles and Minutes 2019!
Are You Registered?
A calculator on the website automatically converts minutes of almost any type of physical activity into miles, and prizes will be awarded in miles in two categories:
- School system with the most average "miles" logged per participant
- School system with the most "miles" total
Miles are normalized based on number of students to help ensure that all schools have an equal chance to win. First prize for each category is $2,000, second prize is $1,000, and third prize is $500! Prize money will be awarded in September.
- For FitBit or other step-counting programs, please use the following conversion: 1 mile or 2,500 steps converts to 30 minutes of Walking/Stroll.
The competition began Monday, June 3 and runs through Sunday, September 8. Participants (must be age 12 and above) can support any local school system, and running totals will always be on the website as well as reported through the media.
Log your minutes . . .

Time to Enter Your Active Minutes!
The 'Miles and Minutes' program began Monday, June 3--but you can still enter all of your active minutes this week!
(If you don't know what 'Miles and Minutes' is click here
for an explanation of what it is and how it works.)
PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR STUDENT ATHLETES
AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE LOGGING THEIR TIMES!
It all counts . . . but only if it is logged in their Miles and Minutes account.
We know that many of you are busy
and don't have time to enter your minutes every day.
Start your week off by entering all of your minutes from the past week
(or 2 weeks if you haven't started yet). It will only take about 5 minutes
--plus it will give you a great review of all you accomplished in the past week--
and give you incentive to start this week off on the right foot!
Please let your family and friends from across the country (or the world)
know that they can log their active minutes for Aquin and help us from
Arizona to Alabama to Arkansas!
