Strong Kid Challenge

The Strong Kid Challenge is designed to promote physical and mental health. There is a strong correlation between regular physical activity and good mental health. We hope that by participating in the challenge, we can help the child create a habit of exercise which will help them face the challenges of today. We also understand that not being able to go to school and play with friends can be difficult. This opportunity may offer children a safe proxy to get exercise while participating in some friendly competition.

The challenge is for the child to exercise 15 minutes each day for 5 straight days. The child can either complete the activities outdoors or indoors. There is a list of exercises the child can do each day.

Each challenge is given a numerical value. Each challenge can be done only one time each day to count for points. The participant will have 15 minutes to do as many exercises and earn as many points as possible. Activities should be adjusted to ensure child safety. Each day the participant should keep track of the amount of points gained by using the attached score card.

At the end of the five days, the child will add up the points they obtain and take a picture of the scorecard. Submit your score card by either posting it on Instagram or Facebook, with #RVUSUFALLHEALTH or email the picture to marketing@rvu.edu to be entered into the prize drawings.
