Louie’s Kids announces 8-week family fitness program ahead of the Reindeer Run – Charleston Post Courier

Posted: October 5, 2021 at 6:12 pm

After nearly a year and a half of no programming, Louies Kids, a nonprofit dedicated to helping Lowcountry families stay healthy, is launching an 8-week bi-weekly training program to prepare adults and their children to participate in the widely celebrated 30th Annual Reindeer Run/Walk presented by Half-Moon Outfitters.

The program is set to begin Monday, October 18 and culminate at the Reindeer Run on December 11. Training willtake place on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at Mount Pleasants Waterfront Park.

Alongside a team of dedicated volunteers, the group will be instructed by local fitness instructors and a behavioral counselor.

To be able to give these families the opportunity to bond together over health and fitness ahead of the holiday season is truly a gift, said Louis Yuhasz, founder of Louie's Kids. We do this for the betterment of our community and the next generation.

The program will include a mix of running and full-body strength training by several guest instructors, as well as nutritional education, including how to shop for, and prepare more healthy meals at home.

A lot of our families have never worked out together, let alone thought about their food choices. We are pleased to provide an interactive and fun environment to teach them these lifelong skills, as they work towards the goal of participating in a 5K, he said.

Registration for a family of four is $50, plus $10 per additional child. Proof of vaccination pending age will be required to attend.

In addition to the fitness and nutrition programming, Reindeer Run race entry and a Louies Kids t-shirt will also be provided.

All proceeds from the training will go to Louies Kids, a national nonprofit helping families and communities live a healthier, more productive lifestyle.
