The 2013 Fit Family Challenge!

The 2013 Fit Family Challenge has officially ended, and Nashville Parent thanks all 787 local families who signed up, became more active, made healthier lifestyle choices, came out to our sponsored events and helped our city beat Charlotte in the Challenge. Congratulations! Although the Fit Family Challenge is over, we hope your family will stay encouraged to keep exercising and eating better on an ongoing basis.

Congratulations to the Smith family of Joelton (Darlene, Geoffrey, Gavin and Danica), winners of four special edition Coca-Cola bicycles now on their way to you.

Keep following us on Facebook! The Grand Prize winner of the Universal Orlando Resort trip will be posted on Tuesday, June 18.

Finally, come out on Thursday, June 27 (time TBA) for our final Fit Family Challenge event when Coca-Cola will present Nashville Mayor Karl Dean with a $10,000 check for the city that will go toward upgrading the playground at Sevier Park as well as the construction of the new community/arts/fitness center there. The press conference takes place at Sevier Park, located at 3021 Lealand Lane in the 12th South District.

Thanks again for participating in the 2013 Fit Family Challenge. Join us again next year.

Affordable Nutrition: It IS Possible!

The convenience of eating out may tempt you, but the truth is, it's healthier and more affordable to eat meals at home.
