“5th Gear Kids” Kicks into Gear

5th Gear KidsFifth graders are the lucky recipients of a new health and wellness program this year in Aurora Public Schools.

5th Gear Kids is a program that rewards fifth-grade students for being active and eating healthy foods. The program's goal is to combat childhood obesity by teaching kids life-long skills about nutrition and physical activity. 5th Gear Kids will focus on developing fifth graders as leaders who make good choices and set good examples for the younger children in their school and their families at home.

Students receive a 5th Gear Kids card, which they can activate at any King Soopers, and they earn points by completing activities at participating partners throughout Aurora. This year, community partners include McDonald's, 24 Hour Fitness, the  Colorado Section of the Professional Golfers Association of America (PGA) and Aurora Parks, Recreation and Open Space.  Students can cash in their points to earn prizes, which range from free AMC movie tickets to an all expenses paid trip to Iceland.

For more information about this program and for a complete list of partners, visit 5thgearkids.org.
