What is the President's Challenge

The President's Challenge is a physical activity/fitness awards program of the PCPFS. During a school year more than 4.2 million awards are distributed.

Have your students perform exercises that build strength, endurance and flexibility as well as motivate students to adopt and maintain physically active lifestyles. If they're between ages 6 and 17, they're eligible to meet the President's Challenge! Your students can join the over 65 million award-winners since we started the school-based program back in 1966.
