National PTA is partnering with Safe Routes to School and Kaiser Permanente to bring families a new physical activity fundraiser called Fire Up Your Feet.
How does Fire Up Your Feet work?
- PTAs register for Fire Up Your Feet online and recruit families to participate.
- Participants build a family page. Recruiting sponsors (i.e., friends, family) via an online donation form is optional.
- Parents and children walk together, share valuable conversation and learning experiences, while building positive behaviors and a love for physical activity.
- Families track their walks with user-friendly online tools and, if desired, raise money for their PTAs. For those who opt to fundraise, 75% of the funds collected go directly to their local PTA to support other healthy lifestyles initiative, while the other 25% goes toward national efforts to support more safe routes to schools.
- PTAs celebrate success!
Fire Up Your Feet helps PTA members live healthier, connect with their families, and raise money to improve their schools. For more information, visit www.FireUpYourFeet.org.
