Indiana Society for Health and Physical Educators


New In-School Programs

The 500 Festival and INSHAPE have partnered to launch Mini-Moves, a free program for Indiana teachers at any grade level, designed to inspire physical movement and instill lifelong healthy habits in Hoosier youth. Mini-Moves is more than classroom activities and lesson ideas, it's the foundation of a fundamental change for our state, led by Hoosier kids and educators.
Mini-Moves is produced by the 500 Festival, an Indiana nonprofit responsible for one of the nation's largest half marathons - the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon, in partnership with INSHAPE, a professional association for educators engaged in the promotion of quality health, physical education, recreation and sport in all Indiana schools.
Both organizations are committed to leveraging the value of Indiana being the home of the Indy 500 and the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon to further a culture of running, walking and movement in grades K - 12.
How Does it Work? Mini-Moves is a free, year-round program designed to inspire physical activity among Indiana's youth, instilling lifelong healthy habits. Mini-Moves is available to all Indiana educators teaching students in grades K-12. Educators simply register your class/school for the 2018 / 2019 Mini-Moves Program and you'll receive a free program kit filled with resources to help inspire movement and ignite your students' physical, emotional, and social learning.
Created by Indiana teachers, for Indiana teachers, Mini-Moves is a flexible, adaptable program that provides Hoosier educators with a menu of options that can be implemented throughout January - June 2019, at a time that's convenient for your class.
