Presidential Champions

Skip 3

Are you already pretty active but craving a new way to test yourself? Join the Presidential Champions challenge.

Aimed at adults or kids who are already physically active, the Presidential Champions challenge is all about pushing yourself to be even more active, logging activities, and earning points as you do it. It’s a good program for people who already get regular exercise, or a great next step for beginners who have completed the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA) challenge.

Here’s how it works:

  • The goal is to be more active more often and see how many points you can earn.
  • You’ll earn points for every activity you log in our free online activity tracker. Points are based on the amount of energy each activity burns.
  • The more points you earn, the sooner you’ll reach the point total required for your desired award: 40,000 points for bronze, 90,000 for silver, 160,000 for gold, and a whopping 1 million for platinum.

There’s no time limit to earn your points, and you can choose from a variety of fun activities to get your points for the day.

Who’s Up For a Little Friendly Competition?

You can sign up on your own or start a group to create a little friendly competition—between classrooms at school, between co-workers, between friends. Why not initiate a yearly challenge and celebrate the physical activity achievements of everyone at the end of the year?
