Dear Parents and School Staff,

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 school based Feelin' Good® Mileage Club® every spring, free of charge, to elementary schools in Clinton, Eaton, Gratiot, Ingham, Ionia, Livingston, Montcalm and Shiawassee counties.

The 2022 Feelin' Good® Mileage Club®, will run April 11 - May 27 and is designed to offer students in grades PK-6 the opportunity to walk/run during designated times of the school day. Participants earn a Toe Token® (brightly colored shoelace charm) for every 5 miles logged, and a specially designed water bottle for reaching the 20 mile program goal. Registration by a parent or guardian is required for students to participate and will be available online from Feb 1 - 28 at SparrowMilesClub.com.

Thank you for your support!
