The Salvation Army and Rush University Medical Center Launches 'Keep it Fit Chicago'
Date:1/10/2009

Unique program starts with families in Englewood

CHICAGO, Jan. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Salvation Army and Rush University announce the launch of Keep it Fit Chicago, a comprehensive, team-oriented, six-month program designed to help Chicago residents create healthier lifestyles and fight obesity. Keep it Fit will start off with 50 families, and unlike any other program in the city, each family will have a team of experts from Rush University Medical Center that will tailor a program to fit the family's specific health needs as they strive to meet their goals.

Keep it Fit Chicago is also being supported by World Sport Chicago (WSC), the living legacy of Chicago's bid for the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Through WSC, two Olympic athletes, Consuella Moore, member, 2004 U.S. Olympic Track Team, and Lee Kemp, member 1980 Olympic Wrestling Team and 2008 Olympic Freestyle Wrestling Coach, will interact with participants and stress the importance of physical fitness and leading a healthy lifestyle throughout the duration of the program.

"The state of being overweight or obese is widespread in too many of our communities," said Captain Julian Champion, corps officer, The Salvation Army's Adele and Robert Stern Red Shield Corps Community Center. "The neighborhood where we're located, Englewood, is just one of many neighborhoods dealing with this epidemic. The goal of the program is to address the problem comprehensively, not just on a superficial level. The problem is entrenched for myriad reasons that could involve limited access to healthy foods, a lack of knowledge of healthy nutrition, little to no physical exercise, and just a general lack of support for healthy lifestyles. We mean to tackle the problems on a psychological level and change the status quo."

While the obesity rates in the country continue to climb, Keep it Fit's aim
