Jared Fogle is famous for losing weight on a diet featuring Subway sandwiches, but many people are not aware that he also started The Jared Foundation with the goal of eliminating childhood obesity.

Jared will deliver an inspiring message to around 600 Stockwell Students, encouraging them to live healthier, happier lives.

The assembly will open with a video message from Mayor Winnecke encouraging students to heed Jared's message and to participate in the upcoming Energize Evansville's "Weekend of Fitness," which includes the annual Push-Ups for Charity challenge May 18 and Streets Alive! health festival May 19.

During the assembly, students will participate in a friendly jump rope and push-up challenge.

Fogle will also make stops at Holy Name Catholic School and South Middle School in Henderson this afternoon, before wrapping up his visit with a Henderson Chamber event at Ellis Park this evening.
