“Nashville Parent has been proud to partner with Coca-Cola, YMCA of Middle Tennessee and Mayor Karl Dean to encourage Middle Tennessee families to get fit together and live healthier lifestyles,” said Stewart Day, Nashville Parent publisher. “Our goal was to make the Fit Family Challenge a fun, engaging way for families to do so, and I believe we accomplished that goal with the help of dedicated families all over this great city.”“Since the first Coke was shared in 1886, our company has believed good things happen when people come together,” said Lauren Steele, senior vice president of corporate affairs, Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated. “The Fit Family Challenge is just another example of the Coca-Cola Company’s commitment to dealing with today’s important issues. We believe that to seriously address obesity, there needs to be an open and honest dialogue, coupled with a comprehensive approach toward promoting nutrition and physical exercise. Thanks to both Charlotte and Nashville for showing communities all over the country a positive way to promote healthy, active lifestyles for everyone.” “Nashville loves a good competition and the Fit Family Challenge was a fun way to encourage families in Nashville to adopt a healthier, more active lifestyle,” Nashville Mayor Karl Dean said. “Our citizens took up the challenge to get out and get active, and as a result Nashville now has bragging rights and a generous grant that will add more opportunities for exercise in our community.” “At Harris Teeter we were pleased to have been a part of this fun program that gets the whole family involved. Hopefully the Coca-Cola Fit Family Challenge will encourage development of healthier habits for both parents and children so we can all live happier, healthier lives,” said Danna Jones, communications specialist at Harris Teeter.
