'Make It Count' Monday!
You Can Still Sign-Up Today and Enter Minutes since June 3!
Can't Remember What You Logged?
"As described in the registration, we have revamped the program to ensure more protection of your Personal Health Information (PHI), which includes the details associated with collecting specific exercise activity that is associated with your name.
Beginning this week, we will provide a running total on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays of the number of minutes you’ve exercised in the program thus far. On those same days of the week, we will also provide updated standings of where the schools stand as far as the number of miles that have been “donated” to them by those exercising on their behalf. If you need information about what you’ve already logged, you can contact us anytime. If you would like a printout of your activity, we can provide a hardcopy at the end of each month – or the entire program, at the end of it – at your request. Please feel free to contact me in either case and I will route your request for quick handling.
We will be working to provide additional security AND the ability to access your personal information, including exercise logging as well as other personal data, in next year’s program. Thank you very much for participating!"
Time to Enter Your Active Minutes!
The 'Miles and Minutes' program began Monday, June 3--and you can still enter all of your active minutes since June 3!
(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 (on Monday--or on Tuesday) 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 anywhere!
That's right, you can still sign up for FHN's Miles And Minutes program without having missed logging any of your minutes!
Register online at www.fhn.org/milesandminutes. All of the rules of the competition are there, as well as information about how miles and minutes will be calculated to determine the winning school systems.
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
This year, look for special challenges to give your school more chances to win prize money!
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.
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 . . .
. . . and help Aquin win $2000--TODAY IS THE DAY!
