Family Fitness Event Supports Great Cause

On October 7, 2012 your family can move for a cause. The third annual Race for Healthy Kids 5K run, walk and fun run helps encourage West Michigan families to be active together while raising money for local schools to become healthier places to learn and grow.

Race for Healthy Kids is organized by West Michigan Action for Healthy Kids (WMAHK). WMAHK is a local coalition helping our kids, families and schools to become healthier through good nutrition and physical activity. The group focuses on total health, not weight. “All kids, no matter their shape or size, need to move everyday and make healthy food choices,” says Dawn Davies, Co-Chair of the WMAHK.

Enjoying activity as a family sets a great example, and makes it more fun! Race for Healthy Kids is the perfect place to start. Whether you’re a seasoned runner, a casual walker, or a first time 5K finisher, this event at is perfect for you! Join us on Sunday, October 7th at 2:00 pm at Rockford High School for a day dedicated to being fit, and having fun, together.
