2017 Fittest School Challenge

Regal Entertainment GroupResults for the 2017 Fittest School Challenge are in! We had a record number of schools compete in this year’s Challenge. Thanks to a sponsorship by Regal Entertainment Group, we are proud to award $4,000 to area schools through our 2017 Fittest School Challenge.

The Fittest School Challenge is a competition between area schools that awards winners based upon percentage of participation. Each child that participated in the April 1, 2017 Covenant Kids Run earned one point for their school. We tallied up each school’s respective points and divided that number by the total enrollment of that school to determine their participation percentage. We will award prize money to the top ten elementary schools in a ten county radius. More than one school in each county is eligible to win prize money. On to the results…
