Subway restaurant launches back-to-school contest, ‘Fresh Start Challenge’Published 4:48pm Friday, August 17, 2012
Students asked to track food, activity choices for prizes
Almost one-third of children in the United States are overweight or obese. Making physical activity and better eating a part of daily life is the aim of a back-to-school contest called Fresh Start Challenge sponsored by local Subway restaurants. Public, private or home schooled students ages 5 to 14 can participate with parent permission.
Kids can pick up a Fresh Start Challenge entry form at participating Subway restaurants to begin tracking their good food and activity choices. The Fresh Start Challenge ends Sept. 30.
Each student who mails in the completed entry form will receive a coupon for a free Subway Fresh Fit kid’s meal or 6-inch sub sandwich. In western North Carolina, two student winners will be selected by random drawing to receive a sub party for their class and a $1,000 fitness grant for their school.
Subway restaurants has partnered with the Jared Foundation and its CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health) program for guidance and tips to help students track their daily progress toward a healthier life.
More information about the Fresh Start Challenge and entry forms are available at participating Subway restaurants and online at subwayfreshstart.com.
