Area families who participated in last year’s program enjoyed this unique opportunity to get healthier together. “Our family really began to focus on fitness from a positive perspective instead of negative after the fit family program,” said a 2015 program participant. “We would (and still do) encourage each other to "beat" our original fit family test numbers as a team. It made fitness a kind of fun subject around our house in general.”

Registration is required to participate in the challenge. All area families interested in committing to the Fit Family Challenge are asked to register online at with activity code 9999.001 or by calling 734/394-5460.
