Energize Evansville puts kids to work

Posted: Updated:

A series of fitness challenges got the blood pumping for families at the Swonder Ice Arena this morning. The Energize Evansville campaign started a four-part series on the fundamentals of fitness this morning. 

Activities like jump roping, push-ups and agility training kept kids busy today, while parents hit the treadmills.

The event focused on learning the basics. Organizers remind people that things like taking the stairs can keep you healthy and those good habits start with teaching your children.  

"I'm here because me and my dad were planning to come here to exercise and get some work done so you can stay healthy," third-grader Kacye Mays said.

Kacye says she jumped rope 87 times in a minute and challenged her dad to a competition. She was surprised to see he was in better shape than she thought, he had a hundred jumps in one minute.
