Sparrow

Welcome School Coordinators!

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 so that we can provide you with updates on your child’s progress throughout the program.
