After heavy snowfall the last couple weeks, this year’s 2015 Kids Fitness Challenge came just in the nick of time for some kids feeling the cabin fever coming on. Saturday, Feb. 28 Native youth had the chance to get out of the house for a friendly physical challenge with their peers. The children participated in activities including: sled drag, rock climbing, balance beam and battle ropes just to name a few. Shining Mountain Diabetes Program, in collaboration with SunUte Community Center, hosted this year’s challenge.
