To inspire and challenge individuals, families, businesses, and schools in our communities to take the first of many steps toward healthier lifestyles.
To educate our residents by providing information that highlights programs, activities, tips and tools with which to fight obesity and unhealthy lifestyles.
We need to get back in shape!
Research has confirmed that any amount of exercise, at any age, is beneficial.
Research has also shown that Louisiana students who pass fitness tests are more likely to score in the Advanced or Mastery levels of the LEAP Test.
Through The Fit Cities Challenge, a regional coalition representing medical, educational, governmental, business and charitable organizations, we hope to inspire change.
This is the beginning of a long term, sustainable effort.
