Take the Mayor’s Youth Fitness Pledge!

The Mayor’s Youth Fitness Initiative (MyFi) kicked off October 15 to help Dallas youth move more and eat smarter to lead longer, stronger lives. Staff and volunteers from the Community Council’s Dallas Area Coalition to Prevent Childhood Obesity who joined youth at the event put their Get Moving with MyFi health and fitness pledge in motion by participating in more than 20 interactive activities.  The Community Council’s station engaged kids and parents in identifying beverages high in calories and sugar that lead to weight gain, such as soda, and encouraged them to drink more water and low fat milk.

Contact the Dallas Park and Recreation Department at 214-670-4100 to enroll youth in MyFi.  Participating children receive a personal health action plan and rewards for progress in achieving physical activity and healthy eating milestones.
