District Initiative - 50 Million Strong by 2029

SHAPE America 50 Million Strong (message on website)

 

We believe that health and physical literacy can be a life-changer for all children. Its a simple but powerful belief that drives everything we do.  Through our ongoing initiative, 50 Million Strong by 2029, we demonstrate our commitment to put all children on the path to health and physical literacy through effective health and physical education programs. SHAPE America uses the following definitions when referring to physical literacy and health literacy:

 

 Physical Literacy - An individual's ability, confidence and desire to be physically active for life.

 

Health Literacy - An individual's capacity to access information, resources and services necessary to maintaining and promoting health.
