You can be part of this fun program! We are looking for a few more adult leaders for this fall. You do NOT have to be an expert biker to volunteer with the Bike Train -- we'll provide training. For more information about how to get involved, email Melissa, or call 636-282-1010 x217.

Over 100 people took part in last years Beat the Holiday Bulge to maintain their weight within one pound or lose weight over the holidays! Starting in November and ending the first week of January each participant was provided ways to eat healthier, stay active and avoid the 5-10 pounds we gain each year.
The American Heart Association has partnered with Get Fit Festus to promote National STart Eating Healthy Day, November 3rd which is the kick off for Beat the Holiday Bulge.
We want to make this bigger and just as successful as last year by getting more of the community involved. If your organization, business or church would like to be involved by hosting one of our weigh ins let us know. Each site that chooses to participate will get all the support and materials to make it happen.
If you would like to know more information on how your group, business or church can be part of this email or call me. Thanks.
