Forest Park firefighters help fight childhood obesity

FOREST PARK, OH (FOX19) - Firefighters spend Thursday morning at Winton Woods Intermediate School giving kids a workout fit for the firehouse.

The Forest Park Fire Department has teamed up with the Winton Woods school district to create a Firefighter Fitness Drill project. The goal of the program is to combat childhood obesity.

The program includes an obstacle course centered around firefighter tasks. Kids learned about diet, nutrition and exercise.

Next month, kids at Winton Woods High School will have their chance to participate in the Firefighter Fitness Drill.
