September is Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. Help inspire the younger generations to become more active and fit with GeoPalz, an online fitness tracking website that offers rewards based on daily steps taken. A husband-and-wife team created the site to encourage their own kids to get moving. Children simply wear a pedometer to count daily steps taken, and then log the total each day. After logging a certain number of steps, a child is eligible to receive an activity-oriented prize such as a soccer ball or a Frisbee®. “Parents are encouraged to get involved as well!” according to an organization press release. “GeoPalz sends weekly updates [to parents] to show progress, alerting them [about] awards [their child has] won and notifying them when their child has earned a prize.”
