Nine Schools Win FHN Miles And Minutes Cash

9/18/2017

FHN's Miles And Minutes encouraged participants to be active and log various types of physical activity to win prize money for the school of their choice.

Miles And Minutes winners were chosen in two main categories – miles per school system (normalized based on the number of students in each school system to help ensure that all schools had an equal chance to win, no matter their size or how many participants they enlist) and average miles per participant. The winners are:

Miles per School System:

  • Aquin Schools – 145,919.03 miles ($2,000)
  • Tri-County Christian – 114,464.51 miles ($1,000)
  • Orangeville – 97,332.38 miles ($500)

Average Miles per Participant:

  • Dakota – 368.98 ($2,000)
  • Freeport – 330.34 ($1,000)
  • Eastland – 296.23 ($500)

FHN added a third category to the program this year – a special Sweepstakes category based on participation in Miles And Minutes Facebook contests and events. Winners of the Sweepstakes prizes were drawn at random. (Schools that won a prize in the two regular categories were not eligible for Sweepstakes prizes.) This year's Sweepstakes winners are:

  • Immanuel Lutheran – $1,000
  • Stockton – $500
  • West Carroll – $250

The free program had 649 participants who logged a total of 2,232,056 minutes of exercise from May 29 through September 3. (That's almost 37,201 hours of exercise!)
