Date:1/16/2009

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- More than 15,000 students at 53 Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) sites will participate in the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA) program sponsored by the General Mills Foundation, AchieveMpls and MPS.

Richard Green Central Park Community School students will host guest speaker and Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Glen Perkins, along with Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, General Mills Foundation Executive Director Ellen Luger and AchieveMpls Chief Executive Officer Catherine Jordan. During the kickoff, students will lead attendees in a physical activity.

PALA was created to recognize those children and youth who begin and continue regular physical activity as a part of their daily lives in school and at home. The six-week program encourages second- through eighth-grade students to set the goal of participating in physical activity for one hour each day, five days a week.

To receive the PALA award, students from grades 2-8 must do any kind of physical activity that results in increased heart rate and breathing, for 60 minutes a day, five days a week during the duration of the six-week program. Participating students who meet their physical activity goals will be awarded an engraved medal, as well as a presidential badge and certificate. Last year, over 6,500 MPS students earned the award.
