At Sparrow, our mission is to improve the health of the people in our communities, and that starts with supporting healthy habits for our kids. Children must become more physically active to ensure a healthier life.
To encourage area children to increase activity, Sparrow offers the Feelin’ Good ® Mileage Club ®, a voluntary program designed to make exercise fun by offering students in grades PK-6 the chance to walk/run during designated break periods at school and earn incentives for reaching key milestones.
The 2019 program runs from April 8 - May 24. During that time, students earn a Toe Token ® (a brightly colored shoelace charm) for every five miles logged and all students who complete 20 miles will receive a specially designed water bottle.
In 2018, 18,770 mid-Michigan children logged 227,715 miles on their way to better health while earning fun prizes.
Kids love participating and 87 percent of parents report an increase in their child's physical activity after participating in the program.
The Feelin’ Good ® Mileage Club ® is provided free of charge to schools in Clinton, Eaton, Gratiot, Ingham, Ionia, Livingston, Montcalm and Shiawassee counties, but is limited to the first 150 schools to enroll. Be sure to register your school as soon as possible!
