Fit For Life Challenge
A local baseball team makes a pitch to kids to help them stay healthy. Asheville Tourists Promotions Manager Jon Clemmons visited third and fourth graders at Fletcher Elementary School Wednesday. The school is taking Subway's "Fit For Life" 15-day challenge to make healthy choices. That means those kids are pledging to eat more fruits and veggies, as well as exercise more.
"You gotta start now. 20 years, if they're making the right decision it carries on into their future," said Clemmons.
The challenge continues until Thanksgiving. Subway says 2,500 students across the mountains are part of the program.
