Title A Randomized Web-based Physical Activity Intervention among Children and Adolescents with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

Objective Regular participation in physical activity helps maintain a healthy weight, improves energy levels and overall health. Children and teenagers who have received treatment for cancer are often less active, may gain weight and have more health problems as compared to children and teenagers who have not received treatment for cancer. This study looks at physical activity and its effect on your health. This study will use a variety of interventions to see if they affect how active you are over time
The overall goal of this study is to:
Study the effect of a reward based website on fitness, quality of life and lab tests associated with physical health in children and teenagers who have completed therapy for ALL

Treatment In this study, you will be asked to participate in a web-based physical activity intervention and attend 4 study visits. You will be given an activity monitor to wear, called a Sqord, to track how active you are. You will have access to a website to track your activity
