The Boy Scouts of America and the President’s Challenge program have teamed up to help Scouts of all ages and abilities increase their level of physical activity by completing the SCOUTStrong Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA). PALA is offered by the President’s Challenge, a program of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition (www.fitness.gov).
PALA is designed to motivate participants to be physically active on a regular basis by doing the activities they enjoy. Select from activities like walking or biking around the neighborhood, hiking a trail, cleaning the house, playing with the kids, mowing the grass, playing basketball, running, gardening, yoga, and many more. Best of all anyone regardless of their fitness level can achieve PALA!
To achieve a SCOUTStrong PALA, your goal is to be active at least 5 days a week for 6 out of 8 weeks. Youth (6-17 years) should get moving for at least 60 minutes per day, and adults (18 years or older) should be active for 30 minutes per day.
