Sneakers photos for FIT Kids Act
Sneakers of different colors, shapes and sizes. These pictures are sending you this message: “Walk, run, and jump with us!”
As the oldest and most well-known heart advocacy group, the American Heart Association is actively endorsing the FIT Kids Act. As part of its campaign, AHA organized the Sneakers For FIT Kids Photo Petition, which you can find as an album in Flickr.
The FIT (Fitness Integrated with Teaching) Kids Act addresses the epidemic of childhood obesity in the US. The Act was introduced in Congress in July 2007 and in the Senate on October 2007. If passed and enacted, this act will improve on the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act “to require that all schools, districts and states include the quantity and quality of PE in the report cards currently sent to parents. It would also ensure that children get the support they need to be active and make healthy food choices.”
By sending in your sneaker photos, you are giving your support for the FIT Kids Act. So take out your cameras and your sneakers. But don’t just stop there. Let’s all get moving towards FITNESS.
