What does Fuel Up to Play 60 (FUTP 60) look like in your backyard?
Since FUTP 60 is a nationwide, student-led healthy eating and physical activity program, we wanted to highlight your local student advocates.
Below, we chatted with Massachusetts’ 2016-17 FUTP 60 State Ambassador Indiana.
Overall, what has been your favorite memory from being involved in the Fuel Up to Play 60 (FUTP 60) program?
My favorite memory has been the ability to interact with students from all over and share ideas!
