SOUTH BEND Obesity has more than doubled in children and tripled in adolescents over the last 30 years.
The Reducing Obesity Coalition of St. Joseph County it’s time to get the youth up and moving. They’re doing it with a free event called “ROC Ur Body.”
Mayor Pete Buttigieg and members of the Notre Dame basketball team will be at the event, participating in various family-friendly activities.
Robin Meleski , Director of Health Education at the St. Joseph County Health Department, says the goal is to change kids’ lifestyles.
“We hope they realize how much fun they’re having while being active.”
The event runs from 5:30 to 7:30 on Friday at Howard Park.
