The Win with Wellness Fit Club held its annual Family Fun Day on Sunday at Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital . This year 14 schools and 3,800 students in Mason, Oceana and Lake counties took part in Fit Club. All together, the kids logged more than 105,000 miles of exercise during the school year.
On Sunday, Elementary students and parents were invited to the hospital grounds, where a variety of giant inflatable slides and active games allowed kids to showcase the fitness they’d been practicing all year. All who completed a 100 mile run/walk challenge during the year were entered in a drawing for bicycles.
Fit Club started in Ludington Area Schools three years ago. Schools in Baldwin, Walkerville and Shelby joined the free community wellness program this year, while schools in Scottville, Custer, Hart and Pentwater participated for the second year.
