Grant Available for Promoting Physical Activity

Are you involved in your school's parent teacher association (PTA)? The National PTA is offering grants for up to $1000 to increase physical activity and awareness of healthy foods to families. The grant application must be submitted by a PTA in good standing by September 10, 2010. There are some criteria for eligibility such as celebrating PTA Healthy Lifestyles Month in November, promote family involvement, educate on the benefits of physical activity and academic achievement and encourage healthy lifestyles. Some ideas in the past that have won are listed on the website such as students creating exercise videos to air during the school day for movement breaks. This would be a great opportunity for a therapy department to partner up with the PTA to promote healthy lifestyles. More info on the PTA Healthy Lifestyles Grant.
