About each program:
Western Dairy Association has partnered with the Denver Broncos to provide Fuel Up to Play 60 schools with educational assemblies called Fuel Up to Play 60 with Miles and Fuel Up to Play 60- Win it in a Minute with Miles. These assemblies are perfect to kickoff the Fuel Up to Play 60 program at your school or as a reward/incentive when your school reaches Fuel Up to Play 60 milestones. Approx 45-50 minutes in length
Elementary School Program- Fuel Up to Play 60 with Miles
Fuel Up to Play 60 with Miles inspires youth to “fuel up” with low-fat and fat-free dairy, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains and to “get up and play” for at least 60 minutes a day. Miles visits the school “in-person” and interacts with a player, registered dietician, and cheerleaders via video screen while creating excitement about Fuel Up to Play 60.
Middle/High School Program- Fuel Up to Play 60- Win it in a Minute with Miles
Fuel Up to Play 60 –Win it in a Minute with Miles, developed for middle and high schools. Similar to the popular Minute to Win It game show format, students experience beating the clock with Miles, the Denver Broncos mascot, while using themed Fuel Up to Play 60 nutrition and physical activity games.
