LAKES URGENT CARE

C

hildhood obesity is on
the rise and two nonprofit
organizations, IlluminArt
Productions and the Jordan Levin
Childhood Obesity Foundation, are
helping to stem the epidemic by stag-
ing Family Fitness Fest from 1-4:30
p.m. Sunday, Oct. 10, at CrossFit
Bloomfield, 2124 Franklin Road,
Bloomfield Hills.
Proceeds will be used by IlluminArt
Productions to initiate Ready, Set,
ACTION!, a 10-week peer education
after-school program for sixth-graders.
These students will perform an infor-
mative play for students in grades 1-5
to help change behaviors related to
eating and physical activity and also
to recognize the important role par-
ents play in their children's behaviors.
Herrington Elementary in Pontiac has
committed to the program for 2011.
Funds also will benefit the local
Jordan Levin Childhood Obesity
Foundation with its goal of fighting
the childhood obesity epidemic one
child at a time. The foundation intends
to financially assist overweight/obese
children and their parents in gaining
exercise education and nutrition coun-
seling on a one-to-one basis through
the Beaumont Hospital Healthy Kids
Program, a 12-session comprehensive
program for children ages 3-18.
Family Fitness Fest will allow par-
ticipants to sample a variety of exer-
cise disciplines and eating choices:
CrossFit, Zumba, ZumbAtomic® (for
kids), Pilates, yoga, martial arts and
nutrition counseling. A schedule
of activities can be found online at
www.familyfitnessfest.com . Anyone of
any fitness or age level can participate.
Instructors are Jordan Levin, Rachel
Matz, Ericka Beletskiy, Cindy Levine,
Nikki Davoodiaria, Peter Davenport
and dieticians Sue Berger and Halle
Saperstein. There is a suggested $20
per person donation or $45 per family.
Family Fitness Fest sponsors are
B'nai B'rith Great Lakes Region and the
Detroit Jewish News. Credit Union One
West Bloomfield is providing favors.
The Governor's Council on Physical
Fitness has endorsed the event.
