Congratulations to the 2014 Voya Run For Something Better® School Award Recipients

Voya Run For Something Better® (Voya RFSB), in partnership with SHAPE America (Society of Health and Physical Educators), seeks to increase physical activity in students and help fight childhood obesity nationwide through the creation of school-based running programs. Research shows that physical activity improves self-esteem, school performance and overall well-being.

In 2014 the Voya RFSB School Awards Program is providing sixty (60) $3,500 grants to elementary and middle schools nationwide that desire to establish a school-based running program or expand an existing one. Congratulations to this year's recipients!

Through activity plans created by SHAPE America and based on the National Standards for Physical Education, the awards program will offer children a healthy start to life and foster their desire to exercise before obesity ever begins.
