Saturday, March 31, 2012 was the final workshop for our Sisters in the L.I.T.E. Mothers & Daughters Challenge. The 12 week "Lifestyle Intervention Teaching Exercise" brought together mothers, daughters, and sisters on a mission to educate themselves on nutrition, fitness, and lifestyle changes that would lead to a long and healthy life.
The ladies of Sisters in the L.I.T.E. learned how to lead a healthy lifestyle with the BodyWorks Toolkit for Healthy Families; got moving with weekly fun fitness classes featuring guest fitness instructors from Club Jam, Daystar Dance Academy, and Zumba for Beginners (all programs available through Kennesaw Parks & Recreation Department); participated in group fitness outings to Brunswick Zone XL and Sparkles Family Fun Center; joined in community events like C.H.O.I.C.E.S. 7th Annual Children's Nutrition Education & Physical Activity Expo, Fit City Kennesaw, and the Kennesaw Easter Egg Scramble; learned how to prepare nutritious and delicious meals at Young Chef's Academy; and compiled all of that knowledge and activity to earn the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award. Visit the Sisters in the L.I.T.E. Program Page to view photos from these events and learn more about the program.
