Operation Fight For A Fitter Fort Partnering With Boys & Girls Clubs On 30 Day Challenge

The Operation Fight for a Fitter Fort (OPF4) program is partnering with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Fort Wayne on a 30 Day Challenge event to improve health and wellness.

The goal of the challenge is for children and Boys and Girls Clubs staff members to drink the ideal amount of water for their body size for 30 days.

This fun activity promotes teamwork, friendly competition, creativity and dedication toward a common goal of promoting healthy living. There is also an educational component to assist children in learning more about the benefits of drinking water.

A special thank you to Fort Wayne Metals for providing water bottles for all participants.

OPF4 is a community wellness initiative to encourage individuals to implement lifestyle changes that include fitness, nutrition, wellness and activities. OPF4’s mission is for residents to lose a collective 500,000 pounds by the end of 2016. To date, more than 1,100 individuals have signed up to participate.
