In an effort to fight childhood obesity, the KidsFit Program encourages Indiana youth to be more active and pursue a healthy lifestyle. This fitness program helps spark interest in walking and running, as well as encourages fitness-related activities among Indiana youth and families.
These 10 and 12-week FREE in class curriculums target grades K-6 across the state of Indiana. The 500 Festival has identified and aligned the program’s curriculum activities with the Indiana Department of Education’s Indiana State Academic Standards for Health and Physical Education. Basic items such as jump ropes, cones, and stopwatches are needed to perform the weekly activities.
