Since its inception, Fuel Up to Play 60 has encouraged 16 million students to be more active, 13 million students to eat healthier, and 115,000 adults to empower youth to lead the program. When students are involved with Fuel Up to Play 60, they are more likely to be active and eat healthy. You can join the movement to help kids Eat Healthy, Get Active and Make a Difference!

The Wellness Impact report – released in 2013 – helps school leaders and parents take action by providing a strong link between physical activity, good nutrition and improved academic achievement.
