  • Let the training begin!
    They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and never have I banked on those words as much as I have when picking out a training plan for Fort4Fitness.
  • In training: Meet Tami
    Meet Tami Brigle. She is a northwest Ohio resident who works in Fort Wayne. She began running a little more than a year ago, starting with Couch to 5K. Running helped her lose 55 pounds (she's lost 105 pounds total).
  • Triple play
    If one is good and two is better, what does that make three? I'd be inclined to say crazy but others might call it a challenge.

Franke Park Elementary School fifth grader Jazmine Byrd takes a survey during "Afternoons R.O.C.K." an after-school drug prevention program that provides fun and positive activities to help prevent youth from using alcohol, tobacco, or drugs. The program which started in October, is nearing the end and students were being surveyed on what they learned.

Shooter's Comments: Today while hunting down a feature idea, I saw that Franke Park Elementary School was having an after-school drug prevention program called "Afternoons R.O.C.K." Anytime kids are involved in a program of any sort, there is usually an interesting photo to be found.

I arrived while the children were working on surveys about what they had learned from the program. Jazmine Byrd caught my eye because of her wonderful winter hat and the thought she was putting into her answers.
