Laila Ali & DoSomething.org Challenge Kids To Get Fit

Posted: Updated:

This October, fearless female boxer and health advocate, Laila Ali is partnering with DoSomething.org to knock out teen obesity in the 'Healthy School Challenge.'

The initiative challenges students to create and implement their own strategies to beat the disease that affects one in three young Americans. Teens are encouraged to dream up healthier cafeteria food campaigns and fitness programs that promote awareness and physical activity.

Students who submit their application before Oct. 29 could win $1,000 scholarships, as well as a celebratory school party.
