Little Rock, Ark. - On Monday, September 30, 2013, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, founded by the American Heart Association and  the Clinton Foundation, will recognize more than 250 schools for transforming their campuses into healthier places for students and staff. President Bill Clinton and Bernie Dennis, chairman of board, of the American Heart Association will honor the award-winning schools at an event in Little Rock, Ark.
 
The day-long celebration will kick off in the morning with a Team Healthier Generation 5K, where more than 250 staff members from the award-winning schools will "walk the talk" and get moving.
 
Through its Healthy Schools Program, the Alliance works with more than 18,000 schools across the nation in every state, reaching more than 11 million students, as well as teachers and other school staff. The Healthy Schools Program is funded primarily by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF).
 
The recognized schools represent more than 25 states and the District of Columbia. Each school distinguished itself with healthy eating and physical activity programs and policies that meet or exceed stringent standards set by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. Schools are eligible for National Recognition Awards at the Bronze, Silver, or Gold level based on the standards they achieve.
