Healthy Futures Challenge

Anchorage Raven - Spring 2015

The challenge begins February 1st!

I am pleased to announce that our school will be participating in the Healthy Futures Challenge again this spring! The contest is for students in grades K-8, and will run for three months: February, March and April.

What is Healthy Futures?

Founded by concerned parents, Healthy Futures is a statewide, grassroots movement to help youth build positive, lifelong physical fitness habits through two core programs: the Healthy Futures Activity Log Challenge and promoting youth attendance at local recreational events.

How can your student participate?

How does your child participate in Healthy Futures? With your assistance, your child records physical activity on the Healthy Futures Activity Log for a consecutive 4-week period. The goal is a minimum of 30 minutes of physical activity with increased heart rate three times a week for four consecutive weeks. Students turn in completed logs to Valerie Thurston (vthurston@yksd.com) in exchange for exciting prizes, including the chance to win a grand prize sports package of their choice, worth up to $300.
