The 500 Festival KidsFit Program gets Indiana kids moving while teaching them how to pursue a healthy lifestyle. This free, customizable program is designed for kids in grades K-6 and is available to schools and groups. KidsFit participants complete weekly lessons (with an Indy 500 theme) and run or walk one mile using the “Start Your Engines” running plan. By the end of the program, kids will have completed 13.1 miles – the equivalent of a half marathon! Registered classes / groups receive: the KidsFit activities and lesson ideas; the “Start Your Engines” running plan; a group incentive chart for participants to log their miles and completion certificates for all kids.
