"Get Fit, Be Strong" Challenge
Operation: Military Kids' "Get Fit, Be Strong" Challenge is an initiative created to foster health and physical fitness among military youth, while also encouraging family togetherness. This challenge kicks off January 1, 2014 and continues until April 1, 2014. This is a great chance for you and your family to create healthy habits and ditch those pesky unhealthy ones! Let's start the New Year off right!
Use this Activity and Goal Tracking Sheet to help you and your family keep track of your health and fitness goals for the length of this challenge. Each person that joins the challenge will receive a certification of participation from Operation: Military Kids.
