Leading Transformational Change
For Our Schools
Stronger Schools Create Stronger Communities
When it comes to health, communities rely on the care and commitment of their local schools. Teachers, administrators and parent-teacher organizations are on the front lines of instilling healthy habits and creating opportunities for healthy choices.
But it’s not easy. With limited resources and nearly unlimited opportunity, it can be hard to know where to start. High Five! can help. We connect schools with the programs and people who can help them champion innovation locally.

High Five! powered by the Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation runs two initiatives for schools:
Mayor’s School Walking Challenge
A month-long challenge to get mayors and students walking. Participants earn funds for physical activity equipment.
Steps for Schools
Connect with local state legislators to increase awareness of the importance of walking and funding to your school.
