iDo26.2

iDo26.2 is a walking/running program designed to encourage regular student physical activity and it requires goal setting, focus and endurance to be successful. Students who finish the program in the academic school year will walk/run 26.2 miles or more in grades 2 - 6 and 13.1 miles or more in grades K - 1. The goal of iDo26.2 is to make exercise both a habit and a positive experience that will lead kids and their families to adopt a healthy lifestyle.
