The GREAT AMAZING RACE Series supports the 30-MINUTES-A-DAY family and academic initiative, a national program that encourages parents to be good ROLE MODELS by participating in three daily home activities (30 minutes a day, 5 times a week) at home, together with their kids, that have the power to improve their students's academic performance and family quality of life: physical exercise, reading books and eating healthy. As with anything, children learn more from watching what you do than what you say. LEAD BY EXAMPLE! We recognize that it is hard to have success at school without a solid foundation at home.
