After eight successful years of implementing the Fit Kids Series, we’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue the series.
FGMN is ready to take on new challenges and will work to improve the physical environments in Central MN to make it easier for kids and families to be active all-year round. FGMN staff will encourage school districts to launch more Safe Routes to School activities; work with local and county government to ensure walking and biking trails are a priority; and educate and nudge kids and families to walk and bike more.
Thank you to every child and family who participated in the series – we could not have done it without you! Keep walking, running and biking!
A special thank you to McKay’s Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram Fiat for sponsoring the series for the past three years through their McKay’s Loves Kids program. McKay’s will continue to promote healthy lifestyles for children, youth, and families and aims to improve health in Central Minnesota.
