Watch the news long enough and you’re sure to hear how our obesity epidemic has reached an all-time high. With so many people complaining about the problem, few are willing to try to tackle it. The Center Helping Obesity In Children End Successfully, Inc. (C.H.O.I.C.ES.) (www.ChoicesForKids.org) has been working toward creating healthy kids for 10 years here in Cherokee County. They are hosting a tennis tournament at the Eagle Watch Tennis Center in Woodstock to fund a local program that will teach families about healthy living.
C.H.O.I.C.ES. is partnering with both Cooking Matters, a national program dedicated to healthy eating, and Envision Health Studio, a local, total-body fitness facility. The program, called the C.H.O.I.C.E.S. Family Workshop Series, is a six-week family workshop that will cater to the whole family! It will be held at Envision Health Studio which is located on Bells Ferry just north of Hobgood Park in Woodstock. This workshop will be offered free of charge and be open to all families.
