Dear Parents and School Staff,

Please use one of the registration links above to register for the 2016 Feelin' Good® Mileage Club®.

Sparrow's mission is to improve the health of the people in our communities, and that includes supporting healthy habits for our kids. To encourage children to become more physically active, Sparrow offers the Feelin' Good® Mileage Club® each spring, free of charge, to elementary schools in Clinton, Eaton, Gratiot, Ingham, Ionia, Livingston, Montcalm and Shiawassee counties. (Limited to the first 150 schools to sign up.)

The Feelin' Good® Mileage Club® is designed to offer students in grades PK-6 the opportunity to walk/run during designated times of the school day. Children earn a Toe Token® (brightly colored shoelace charm) for every 5 miles logged, and a specially designed water bottle for reaching 20 miles. Registration is required for your child to participate, which will also allow us to provide you with updates on your child's progress throughout the program.

Regular physical activity helps kids:

  • Build and maintain healthy bones, muscles, and joints.
  • Control weight, build lean muscle and reduce fat.
  • Improve their sense of self-image and autonomy.
  • Foster healthy social and emotional development.
