Fire Up Your Feet Launches Nationally To Encourage Healthy, Active Schools

In certain areas throughout the nation, the Fire Up Your Feet Activity Challenge program allows schools and families to track the minutes they spend moving each day and to challenge each other – and themselves – to integrate more exercise into their daily lifestyle. This program provides ways to earn rewards and provides even more inspiration for schools and families to walk more, play more, and improve their overall health and wellness.

Fire Up Your Feet is helping schools and families make healthy, easy changes that get everyone moving. The national expansion of Fire Up Your Feet is funded by a $1.76 million grant from Kaiser Permanente to the Safe Routes to School National Partnership. Fire Up Your Feet is an integral part of Kaiser Permanente Thriving Schools, a multi-year effort to make schools "the heart of health." Kaiser Permanente is committed to promoting the health benefits of walking as underscored by its Every Body Walk! campaign and now Fire Up Your Feet, which encourages walking to, from and during school.

About Fire Up Your Feet and the Safe Routes to School National Partnership

Fire Up Your Feet is a core program of the Safe Routes to School National Partnership. It began as a pilot program in 2011 thanks in part to the leadership of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota and is expanding nationally thanks to generous support from Kaiser Permanente and in partnership with the National PTA. The Safe Routes to School National Partnership's mission is to advocate for safe walking and bicycling to and from schools, and in daily life, to improve the health and well-being of America's children and to foster the creation of livable, sustainable communities. For more information visit fireupyourfeet.org or saferoutespartnership.org.
