The Active Gamecocks program was created in 2011 to combat childhood obesity. The program encourages children, between kindergarten and eighth grade, to participate in a two-week, 30-minute a day exercise regimen. If the student completes this exercise regimen, they become eligible to receive two complimentary tickets (one student and one guardian) to a predetermined Gamecock athletic sporting event. The program is put in place during the academic year, where three sessions can take place - fall, winter and spring. Organizations are encouraged to participate in as many sessions as they would be it one or three!
