ACES

Date: May 5, 2021 | Location: Statewide

Because Michigan is currently under a state of emergency, ACES Day events have been cancelled this year. While this is disappointing to all involved, the health of Michiganders is our top priority. We will continue to encourage Michigan students to stay active and healthy during this time.

For now, we invite you to visit us on Facebook  (links to new window) for the most current updates.

The Michigan Fitness Foundation coordinates All Children Exercise Simultaneously (ACES) Day with help from Farm Bureau Insurance of Michigan (links to new window). Michigan schools have the freedom to make the event their own and are encouraged to get creative! Schools have observed ACES Day in a variety of ways, including:

  • Walking parades
  • Dance / aerobics classes
  • Field days or outdoor events

Questions? Contact us at events@michiganfitness.org (email link).

School Registration

For additional materials to help your school promote and plan the event, we’ve put together a Planning Tool Kit (zip file). This kit includes additional information about ACES and its history, invitation ideas, planning and program suggestions, talking points and sample speeches, and templates for your press releases, school newsletter, and more.

Registration typically opens in November or December each year.
