Let’s Commit to Fit together!

Childhood obesity is a growing problem in the United States, and especially in the South. The Commit to Fit program was developed to help address this issue and teach children to make healthier choices at an early age.  It combines existing structured wellness programs with fun and friendly competition to educate Shelby County Schools students about the components of good health. The program is open to all Shelby County Schools  and promotes physical activity, healthy eating and first aid skills.
