The Fitness for Kids Challenge is a community-wide initiative in Western New York to combat the rising rates of obesity in our children. This program challenges every elementary school child to increase their physical activity and make good nutrition choices from October 22, 2010 – April 30, 2011.
We invite and encourage all elementary-aged children residing in the eight counties of WNY to join. The Challenge aims at getting kids to complete health and fitness activities, with hopes that healthy eating and fitness will become a part of their lifestyle.
