Posted 10/11/2017

The Ultimate Fit Kid Challenge Calloway County

If you had the ability to create a world with more birthdays, would you do it? This year Calloway County will be hosting its American Cancer Society Ultimate Fit Kid Challenge to support the fight for a cancer-free world. This fun obstacle course challenge will be held on November 4, 2017, from 8:30 AM – Noon at the Central Park in Murray.


The challenge is an age-specific race with obstacles to encourage healthy living and cancer prevention. Children and adolescents ranging from the ages of 4-18 are eligible to participate. The registration fee for the event is $20.00/child for early registration and $25.00/child the day of the event. If you or someone you know would like to compete please fill out a registration form. You can find the forms at our website or by emailing janel.tate@cancer.org. When arriving at the event, please go to the registration table located to the left of the Rotary Amphitheater to check in. Nutritious concessions will be available to purchase at the event.

“With 1 out 4 people dying of cancer, there is still a race to run“ says Nicole Hudson, Murray-Calloway County Hospital and UFKC committee member. “I’m very excited to be part of planning the 1st ever Ultimate Fit Kid Challenge! UFKC is an event in which families and their community can come together to have fun and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.’ Janel Tate of American Cancer Society explains, “Cancer prevention and healthy living are top priorities for American Cancer Society. ACS funded research has shown that obesity is linked to multiple types of cancer. Proceeds from this event will support American Cancer Society and its research program which is something we all benefit from.”
