University Health System Go!Kids Challenge powered by San Antonio Sports

Parents and Teachers

PARENTS: Being active and eating healthy food is fun, but it isn't just for kids. That's why we're encouraging parents and children to motivate each other in the University Health System Go!Kids Challenge™ powered by San Antonio Sports. This year, we require that a family member sign the child's activity log before it is turned in. We want to know that someone at home is encouraging each child to be healthy. Thank you!
