Get Up, Get Active, Get Healthy
Get Up! Get Active! Get Healthy!
In September 2009, PHS invited students from high schools in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan to participate in its second annual Fields of Green high school scholarship challenge. For this challenge, students were tasked with creating 20- to 30-minute health and fitness programs that had to include healthy snack options, a detailed budget, a method for evaluating the program’s success and a creative marketing slogan.
Around the World: Destination Health
"Around the World: Destination Health," winner of the Get Up! Get Active! Get Healthy! challenge, is a school fitness program designed to fight childhood obesity by encouraging students to get fit — one country at a time.
The globe-trotting-themed exercise program was developed by students at Notre Dame Academy and St. John's Jesuit High School in Toledo, who were first-place winners of ProMedica's Fields of Green high school scholarship competition. View competition results.
