500 Festival Mini-Moves Program
Physical activity among youth is linked to better physical, mental, and social health as well as better learning outcomes. Physical movement powers a culture of learning, health and happiness in Indiana schools and communities. That's why the 500 Festival launched the 500 Festival Mini-Moves Program, a free program for Indiana teachers at any grade level, designed to inspire physical activity and lifelong healthy habits in Hoosier youth.
Mini-Moves is more than classroom activities and lesson ideas, it’s the foundation of a fundamental change for our state, led by Hoosier kids and educators! The program consists of in-class activities, goal setting, and culminates with an event to celebrate the joy of physical activity and achievement of your students
. Each school determines the duration of the program and their celebration event plans.
Mini-Moves is produced by the 500 Festival
, an Indiana nonprofit responsible for one of the nation’s largest half marathons – the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon. The 500 Festival is committed to leveraging the value of Indiana being home of the Indy 500 and the Indy Mini to further a culture of running, walking and movement with kids in kindergarten all the way to the end of high school.
