Health-E-tips’ JAM School Program and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation Launch JAM WORLD RECORD 2013 to Encourage Physical Activity
Date:5/15/2013

Calabasas, CA (PRWEB) May 15, 2013

Health-E-tips’ JAM School Program and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation have teamed up for the second annual JAM (Just-A-Minute) World Record. On Thursday, September 26th millions of kids and adults will be participating to set a new record for the most people taking a one-minute fitness break. JAM World Record was created to promote the importance of everyone being active every day and encourage millions of kids and adults to take “just-a-minute” to get up and get moving.

Registration is now open at http://www.jamworldrecord.org. Individuals and groups are encouraged to register and ensure their participation counts toward the record-setting event.

The JAM School Program delivers physical activity routines and simple healthier habit ideas to the classroom. JAM is designed to inspire kids (and adults) to adopt healthier lifestyle habits. JAM is a free wellness resource available to every school nationwide. The Alliance for a Healthier Generation works to reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity and to empower kids to develop lifelong, healthy habits. The Alliance works with more than 17,000 schools to increase access to healthier foods and physical activity for students and staff.

By working together on JAM World Record, the JAM School Program and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation will build the first-of-its-kind public awareness campaign that puts schools and kids in a leadership position to help create social change.

“This campaign engages our schools and kids to lead a major national initiative and be credited for its success and our hope is that, like most public change campaigns, our kids will leave lasting impressions on us all. Additionally, it’s a really great way to raise awareness and give credit to educators for all the work they are doing in response to the obesity and sedentary issues in our nation,” says Patti Howell, Founder of the JAM School Program.

JAM World Record 2013 has a goal to rally 3 million people to participate in this year’s event, more than doubling last year’s inaugural record of just over 1.3 million.

“We are thrilled to be collaborating with JAM School Program to increase the awareness of JAM World Record and spotlight the importance of infusing physical activity throughout the school day,” says Ginny Ehrlich, CEO of the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.
