300,000 Michigan Children Exercise Across the State
Over 300,000 of students were up and active to show the importance of physical activity for the 20th Annual ACES Day in Michigan.
• In 1989, ACES stood for "American Children Exercising Simultaneously"
• ACES Day is generally observed on the first Wednesday in May. This year, ACES Day was held on May 2, and at 10:00 a.m., all participating students exercised simultaneously as a worldwide gesture of unity in fitness.
• The Michigan Fitness Foundation has partnered with Farm Bureau Insurance of Michigan in promoting ACES Day for the past 20 years. Together the organizations have taken the lead in encouraging Michigan schools to participate as a way to educate children to get excited about physical activity.
