Jodi Lee Foundation KAY-A-DAY
The Jodi Lee Foundation want to make moving more and sitting less super easy and fun for school aged children. They want being active every day to become second nature.
Why? That’s easy. The stats confirm that in Australia, 9 out of 10 young people aged 13-17 don’t move enough and children aged 5-12 should accumulate at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
Being physically active every day and promoting a healthy body and mind helps children to grow and develop now, while reducing the risk of developing certain diseases later in life – including bowel cancer.
Kay-A-Day is designed to encourage kids of all ages to walk or run just one kilometre a day for 21 days – in total, the same distance as a half marathon.
There are many opportunities to sit. We need to find the time to move!
Getting involved with Kay-A-Day is rewarding for those talking part and also for friends and family who want to get involved by sponsoring participants for every ‘kay’ completed.
The Jodi Lee Foundation are asking teachers and staff to register their school today!
Students can run Kay-A-Day in Term 3 or Term 4 – whatever suits your school best!
Registrations close 30 June 2017.
Once your school is registered you can set up a fundraising page for each class or individuals participating.
Students will each receive:
- Kay-A-Day Training Card to track and record progress
- Kay-A-Day Lanyard
- Kay-A-Day Shoelaces
Kay-A-Day is a primarily an initiative to get school aged children moving more. Secondary to that is the fundraising that can easily be done via the Jodi Lee Foundation website or donation form by the children and classes participating.
