To help your child stay active this summer, Walkabouts is launching our second annual Stay Active! Summer Challenge for pre-K to 2nd grade students! The idea is simple – we’ve created an activity tracker for children to complete for 10 weeks during the summer. Print out our Stay Active! Summer Challenge Activity Tracker, post it someplace visible like on the fridge, and fill it out each day.
By posting the activity tracker in a central place in your home, you’ll be reminding your child of the importance of movement while encouraging participation in the challenge.
Each child who completes the challenge by August 30, 2019 will receive a t-shirt from Walkabouts.
Encourage your child’s classmates and friends to participate in the challenge! The elementary school with the largest number of participating students will receive $1,000 courtesy of Walkabouts.
