The Cleveland Cavaliers are excited to offer your classrooms the opportunity to participate in the Fit As A Pro program, presented by Medical Mutual and Giant Eagle!
Fit As A Pro is designed to encourage children to participate in daily exercise and maintain a well-balanced diet. Fit As A Pro is open to all students in grades K-8 in Cuyahoga, Erie, Lorain, Summit, Medina, Portage, Geauga and Lake counties.
Participating teachers that register their classrooms will receive an email each month of the Cavaliers regular season (November – April) with an exciting wellness challenge for their students. One classroom will be randomly selected each month to participate in a fitness or nutrition activity with a Cavaliers player! At the conclusion of the program (April 15, 2015), teachers will complete an on-line form indicating how many students in their class participated in all of the monthly activities. All students that participate in the monthly lessons will receive a Cavaliers prize. In addition, each teacher will receive a Fit As A Pro poster for his/her classroom as well as one poster for each student to take home.
The deadline for registration is October 27, 2014, and every classroom that registers by this date will be eligible to participate. The program will begin on Monday, November 3, 2014, and conclude on Wednesday, April 15, 2015. If you are signing up multiple classrooms, please complete a separate registration form for each room.
The first email to all teachers will go out on Thursday, November 6, 2014, with the first suggested wellness challenge for the month of November.
We look forward to your participation in the 2014-15 Fit As A Pro program!
