Fit Kids Series

We had another great year with our 2017 BLEND Fit Kids Series! Thank you to all kids and families for being active in our annual Series. Stay tuned for more information on our 9th annual Fit Kids Series, coming in 2018!

This program provides incentives for children (12 years and younger) to be active throughout the year. Our Series consists of a variety of local family fitness events throughout Central Minnesota. Children who participate in 4 or more Fit Kids Series events, or 3 Series events +1 additional event, will qualify for the incentive prize!

McKay’s Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram Fiat will be the Fit Kids Series presenting sponsor for the 3rd year in a row! They are sponsoring the Series as part of their McKay’s Loves Kids program. McKay’s is committed to promoting healthy lifestyles for children, youth, and families and aims to improve health in Central Minnesota.

Participation in the Fit Kids Series is FREE! Please note, you must register your child with BLEND in addition to registering for any individual event. Registration and fees for individual events are independent from the Fit Kids Series.

Registration for the 2017 Fit Kids Series is closed. Please check back next year for our 2018 Series information.
