Back to School with Go for the Gold!

August 30, 2011

As students get ready to head back to school this year, we are excited for another year of Go for the Gold!

Go for the Gold is a partnership of Chicago Public Schools and Healthy Schools Campaign with the USDA and Illinois State Board of Education. Go for the Gold provides leadership training, programs and resources to Chicago schools as they strive to meet the USDA's HealthierUS School Challenge, a cornerstone of First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move campaign.

In June, we celebrated as 19 schools received national recognition for making health and wellness a priority! Now, dozens more schools are on their way to making changes. We invite you to learn more and check out our latest Go for the Gold video!
