Chicago Bears Helping Keep Kids Fit

The Chicago Bears First and Goal Program features Bear Mascot Staley DaBear and seeks to educate kids on the benefits of living healthy. At Sporting Chance Press, we believe programs like this can make a difference. To jump start the program at a particular school, school administrators can book a personal visit and show by Staley and his MC. During the show, kids are taught the 4 downs to scoring a healthy touchdown in the game of life.

The 4 downs are as follows:

1st Down: Eat Healthy
2nd Down: Drink Plenty of Water
3rd Down: Get Plenty of Rest
4th Down: Keep Physically Active

When a school takes on the program, for 6 weeks, students chart their progress on very simple charts--one chart per week--signed by parents and turned in at school. Every student who finishes Staley’s Fitness Challenge is entered into a grand prize drawing and receives: A Letter of Honor from Staley and a special Chicago Bears Health Award commemorating the accomplishments of each challenger.

A huge trophy is awarded to the school that has the highest percentage of students competing the fitness challenge. Staley, along with some special guests, will visit the winning school.

More information on the program is on the Staley page of the Bear's web site.
