Jackie Joyner-Kersee Looking Forward to Frightfully Fun Time With Kids Tomorrow

Jackie Joyner-Kersee Foundation Frightfully Fun Run

The Jackie Joyner-Kersee Foundation is hosting its annual Frightfully Fun Kid’s Run/Walk at Six Flags St. Louis tomorrow The event aims not just to raise funds for the organization, but also to promote its Families in Training Program (F.I.T.).

This physical conditioning program, for 6-18 year olds and their families, emphasizes the importance of combining a healthy, balanced diet with proper exercise daily. The F.I.T. program is a cooperative effort between Schnucks Markets and The Jackie Joyner-Kersee Foundation in an initiative to challenge families to do more for their health (Athletes For Hope).
