Sue Wicks, former WNBA star, visited with Newark Y leaders to discuss her new organization, Fight 2B Fit, a health and fitness challenge for children.
The Fight 2B Fit Challenge is led by former WNBA All Star And Rutgers Basketball player Sue Wicks. Ms. Wicks is currently a sports ambassador for the US State Department.
The 2BFit Challenge is a six week team competition. The Fight 2B fit website presents challenges to teams who score points as they accomplish various tasks. The idea behind the challenge is that a simple task repeated over the course of time becomes a habit. The categories are established to focus on body, mind and spirit and will include physical activity, healthy food choices and social responsibility. Kids will be able to measure their individual progress, their team's progress and the progress of competing teams on a daily basis. Upon completion of the six week program, a reward ceremony will be held to honor the Winners.
