City Commissioners recently proclaimed Coral Springs a Commit 2B Fit community, encouraging the entire family to get healthy through exercise and smart eating habits. As part of the City’s commitment to health, the City is encouraging residents to join the national 50 Million Pound Challenge.
Today, two out of every three adults are considered to be overweight or obese. Even more troubling, 17 percent of all children in the U.S. are overweight. By joining this challenge for free, residents can commit to leading healthier lifestyles and update their weight loss progress online, record their daily activities, and view a list of healthier meals.
“This 50 Million Pound Challenge is one way that we can join together to be a healthy community,” Mayor Scott Brook said. “ I am imploring all community organizations to join our lead and challenge our citizens to lose weight and get fit.”
