Move Your Way Southern Nevada

Move Your Way Sponsorship Program

Move Your Way is an initiative of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to promote the physical activity guidelines and help people live healthier lives through increased physical activity. The Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) is looking to expand our Move Your Way activities to those that help keep our youth active and healthy.

We are looking specifically to partner with schools, places of faith or other organizations that work with youth or parents of youth to promote physical activity and raise awareness of the physical activity guidelines for youth. Because some populations are less active than others and some have fewer opportunities for physical activity, special consideration will be given to applications that propose to work with Asian and Pacific Islander, Black or African American, or Hispanic or Latino youth or their parents and guardians.

Applicants may request up to $1,000 in sponsorship support for their proposed program, activity or event. The proposed program, activity, or event does not need to be new. You can apply for the sponsorship to expand or enhance an existing program, activity or event by incorporating the Move Your Way elements addressed above and by using the funding to expand your existing programs to reach additional audiences including priority populations listed above.

If the funding is used to support existing programs, activities or events, you must indicate how the program, activity or event will be expanded using the sponsorship funding. This could include adding a new element or component to the program, serving a new population, or adding additional sessions or events to the existing program.

Parents

You know kids need physical activity, but did you know that it can help them feel better right away and help them academically?  So find ways to help you kids fit more activity into their day.

How Much Do They Need?

Kids and teens ages 6-17 need at least 60  minutes of physical activity every day. Kids younger then 6 are often active naturally, but aim for 3 hours a day.

What Counts?

Whatever gets them up and moving!

  • Encourage them to play with friends outside
  • Sign them up for sports or classes
  • Take family walks or bike rides
  • Use the Move Your Way interactive graphic to see how they can get the recommended 60 minutes a day

Adults

Everyone knows that we need physical activity to stay healthy but do you know how much you need? The 2nd edition of Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommends that adults do 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity and two days of muscle-strengthening activity per week.

If 150 minutes sounds like a big commitment, break up the total time into smaller increments to make it more manageable. Move Your Way has an online tool that can help you set weekly exercise  goals, choose activities you want to do and get personalized tips to help keep you motived.

No matter who you are, where you live, on your own, or together. You can find a way that works for you. Here are some ideas to get you started.
