Applications for Fuel Up to Play 60’s Funding Initiative Due February 1, 2012

January 3, 2012—Fuel Up to Play 60 is now accepting applications for its nationwide funding initiative for K-12 schools enrolled in the in-school wellness program. The funding initiative provides money to help schools jumpstart and sustain healthy nutrition and physical activity improvements. Any U.S. school can enroll in the free program and thus be eligible to apply for up to $4,000 to help increase awareness of and access to nutrient-rich foods and physical activity opportunities for students.

The funds can be used for a variety of different program-related activities, such as student engagement and motivation, in-school promotions, family engagement, tracking and measurement and overall Fuel Up to Play 60 program implementation.

The next application deadline is February 1, 2012.
