TAKE THE FIT FATHERS DAY PLEDGE: Childhood obesity is at an all-time high, while hypertension and other health risks are increased in men 20 years and older. This national campaign asks fathers to commit to specific healthy choices. It starts with dads on Father’s Day taking the pledge and following the simple steps to wellness. Exercise and healthy eating saves generations.

National Ambassador Kyle Arrington of the Baltimore Ravens: Playing in the NFL means constant elevation with new training techniques, eating healthy and maintaining consistent, mental positivity. Also, rest is far too important and I need to conserve as much energy as possible for my defense. But off the field I’m a family guy who dedicates success to my wife and two kids including the addition of a new baby boy in January. Together our teamwork is strong and focused. So make sure you take the Fit Fathers Day Pledge!

Fit Fathers Day 2016 Youth Ambassador: Journey Butler is your normal, super active teenager. The 13-year-old is involved in a nationally competitive double-dutch jump rope team, the Greenbelt S.I.T.Y. Stars and is also cheerleader and an aspiring rapper. Check out this adorable video about ratting out on her older brother called “I’m Telling.” A few months ago Journey was diagnosed with Renal Medullary Carcinoma (RMC), a rare and highly aggressive form of cancer affecting young Black patients that carry the Sickle Cell trait. The average survival rate is 12 months but some patients survive more than two years. There is no cure yet for RMC but early detection can help by way of knowledge of the disease, its symptoms and getting tested if the Sickle Cell trait is present. Journey’s family has started #JourneyToHappiness to assist and encourage people against this lethal opposition.

Lead by example so your child becomes the example. This is an event to benefit Pediatric Cancer and promote good health. So eat clean, stay active and continue to energize your life.

2015 MORE Summer Festival

Kia_Sorento_2015_MORE_Summer_Festival_Fit_Fathers

Experienced by Kyle Ayoung

MORE’s Summer Festival at Rosaryville State Park in Upper Marlboro, MD was a spectacular, active family outing for mountain bike riders of all skill levels. My fellow Fit Father Shawn Ciers and I participated specifically in the Poker Ride, an 11-mile route through the park’s perimeter and interior trails. At each of the 5-way stations, riders drew a card from the deck as part of the competition. Riders with the top 5 poker hands won prizes.

Kia_Sorento_2015_MORE_Summer_FestivalThe state park was certainly worth an experience with fast and challenging, steep trails. After unloading the Kia Sorento our Trek MTBs were up for the winding twists and stimulating turns, while fun, up-hill points along the route provided a great endurance test for these Fit Fathers. MORE also hosted a youth ride and a skills competition for advanced riders.

It was an energizing and vibrant Sunday morning workout to kick off our days. We definitely found a new home for future riding.
