The President’s Challenge Advocate partnership program recognizes the importance of working with a variety of sectors to improve the physical activity and fitness levels of all Americans. We invite organizations and individuals to join us in our work supporting the mission of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition (PCFSN), which is to engage, educate, and empower all Americans across their lifespan to adopt a healthy lifestyle that includes regular physical activity and good nutrition.
The Goal:
The goal of the Advocates program is to partner with the President's Challenge to promote participation in and use of the President’s Challenge Physical Activity and Fitness Awards Program.


Million PALA Challenge:
For 2010‐2011, Advocates are asked to support the PCFSN’s “Million PALA Challenge.” and incorporate promotion of the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA) in their partnership activities. PALA is for people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities and is a great way to jumpstart or maintain a healthy lifestyle. The “Million PALA Challenge” supports First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative to end the epidemic of childhood obesity within a generation by getting more youth and families active.

Requirements:
- Complete the President's Challenge Advocate Application (see below)

Next Steps:
- Once a completed application is received and approved, a Letter of Understanding including the terms of the partnership will be sent to the primary organization contact for agreement and signature.
