Fire Up Your Feet
National PTA is partnering with Safe Routes to School National Partnership and Kaiser Permanente for Fire Up Your Feet—a physical activity program that encourages families to get more physical activity while raising money for their PTA or school. There are two main components to the Fire Up Your Feet program: fundraising and the activity challenge.
Fire Up Your Feet Fundraising helps PTAs, schools and families be more active and raise money! You can raise funds through walkathons, fun runs and other physical activity efforts to support all kinds of resources for your school, such as P.E. equipment and a cafeteria salad bar.
Fire Up Your Feet is available to any PTA and school, and 75% of the funds collected go directly to the local PTA! It's simple to start an online team using the fundraising toolkit, which is full of ideas, tips and a step-by-step guide to make your program a success!
The 2014 Spring Activity Challenge is April 1 to May 31 and offers additional financial awards for PTAs and schools. Students, families and school staff can sign up and track their activity to help win a portion of more than $70,000 in awards! The challenge is available only to K-8 PTAs in the following regions:
- April 1-30: Metro Atlanta, California, Colorado and Hawaii
- May 1-31: Baltimore area, Oregon, Southwest Washington, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, Virginia and Washington DC.
