Get Fit NH Gets Kids Moving for CHaD
Family connection inspires a morning of fun and exercise for kids and parents
The 'Kids for Kids' training fundraiser was specially designed with kids in mind. There were no weights and rep counts. This training was disguised as play for the kids. After a team warm up, the children and their parents enjoyed relay races that focused not on winning but on team work. Everyone was having so much fun they didn't realize they were firing up their joints, muscles, reactive ability, and central nervous system. The Get Fit NH coaches each had a station with games such as medicine ball hot potato, ladders, get up to balance, mirror mirror and rhythm machine and the teams rotated to each.
Get Fit NH Coach Dean Carlson’s sister Deb Peets knows first hand the excellent care provided to kids at New Hampshire’s only comprehensive, full-service children’s hospital. Deb's children have been through over 25 surgeries at CHaD for a condition known as van der Woude Syndrome. Because of the close family connection between the Carlsons and the Peets, the hospital is near and dear to the hearts of the owners of Get Fit NH. It was fitting that this training fundraiser brought members of their extended Get Fit NH family - parents as well as kids - together to exercise and have fun in support of other families whose children have health challenges.
