Subway's Jared visits the tri-state

Jared Fogle, the Subway spokesman, honored students at Monroe Elementary School on Thursday in Monroe, Ohio.

His visit was to applaud their effort in the Subway Fitness Challenge. Monroe Elementary is just one of eight schools to be rewarded. Several Subway franchises in the area have been encouraging a healthy lifestyle for Cincinnati students, including the "Jump Rope for the Heart" program.

Monroe Elementary will receive a flat screen TV and media cart, a Nintendo Wii, and four fitness and sports games as prize.

Jared has been Subway's spokesman for over a decade after losing weight from his "Subway diet" and regular exercise.
