Body First School Fitness Challenge

The 2018 Body First School Fitness Challenge was cancelled due to heavy rains in the Manhattan area on October 6. However, more than $10,000 has been awarded to participating schools based on the students registered for the event. This year's awards bring the 10-year total of funds to area schools to $90,000, made possible by generous support of the title sponsor, Body First Health and Wellness, and many more local sponsors.

Schools are awarded money based on total number of students participating, and the percentage of students participating.

Information on the 2019 Body First School Fitness Challenge will be announced on this website when it becomes available.
