ING Run For Something Better has partnered with the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) to increase physical activity in students and help fight childhood obesity nationwide through the creation of school-based running fitness programs.
- Schools with existing school-based running programs are eligible for an award, but the school must meet the outlined award criteria. Schools also have the opportunity to use the ING RFSB program materials to enhance their current running program.
- Awards are available to programs that target grades Kindergarten through 8th grade in elementary or middle schools.
- Schools must design a before, during and/or after school program which will be offered to the best of the school’s ability to all students in eligible grades. The program must not be exclusive to participants of one gender. The program must be offered a minimum of 2 days per week.
- The program must have a commitment of at least 25 students in grades 4th-8th in order to be eligible to apply and supply the PACER data results.
