Join Get Fit Frisco and Support The Frisco Education Foundation (February, 2006)

Centennial Medical Center is on board to do health screenings at the kick-off for Get Fit Frisco Saturday and organizers say fasting isn’t necessary but do eat a light, healthy breakfast such as oatmeal or bran cereal. The screenings include blood pressure and heart rate, glucose levels, cholesterol and bone density.

Get Fit Frisco is ten weeks of living healthier and eating healthier. For a simple $15 enrollment fee you can improve your own health and know that all proceeds from your enrollment fee will go to Frisco Education Foundation.

Get Fit Frisco! is a joint program promoted by, FsPN, Frisco-Online, Frisco Independent School District and the City of Frisco. The program will kick off at Frisco Commons on February 11 from 8 a.m. until noon. Folks can sign up on-line at or at the opening ceremony. This is in conjunction with the 2nd Annual Frisco Trick-A-Trout fishing event.

Once participants enroll they can earn points through physical activity. Several events are planned throughout the program that adults and kids can attend and earn points. Adults must earn 1,500 points and children must earn 3,000 points. Folks who complete the program are invited to the closing celebration and will be eligible for a variety of raffle prizes.

Kids can enroll through school for free, though a $5 donation would be appreciated. Physical education class participation will put our Frisco students well on their way to meeting the goal. Elementary PE teachers and local leaders got together Monday, January 30 at Griffin Middle School to prepare a video to promote fitness and bring awareness to the program.

Middle School and high school students can log their activity on line at or pick up an activity log at the front office of their school. A drop box area will be available at all campuses.
