Drinking eight ounces of water earns five points, while yard work nets 25. A game of baseball garners 75 points. Prizes for participation range from pins to silicon bracelets to T-shirts and jump ropes. Air Force family members between the ages of 9 and 18 can sign up by visiting their local Air Force Services youth center and registering on the FitFactor Web site.
