Brenner Fit Challenge a way to fight childhood obesity

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The Brenner Fit Challenge calls on both adults and children to exercise, have fun and fight childhood obesity.

Katie Boles, a registered dietitian with Brenner Children’s Hospital, joined us Wednesday on the FOX8 Morning News to discuss the initiative.

The Brenner Fit Challenge is set for Saturday, Sept. 7 at Wake Forest University’s Bridger Field House. A walk begins at 9 a.m., while bike races begin at 11:30 a.m.

Put on your walking shoes, get your friends, family or team together and join us as Brenner Children’s Hospital hosts a fundraising walk and pro-am bike race. The Brenner FIT Challenge is a community event that encourages you to get out and move, learn about healthy eating and help fight childhood obesity. The day includes a 2.5 mile walk with 10 physical and educational challenges for you to accomplish on the course, a pro-am bike race and fun-filled activities. Proceeds benefit the Brenner FIT (Families in Training) Program, which is a family-centered, evidence-based approach to weight management.
