News Release by City of Revere

Revere – The City of Revere and Mayor Daniel Rizzo are pleased to announce that the “Revere Citywide Free Fitness Challenge” is slated to kick-off on May 11, 2015 and will run for five weeks ending on June 10, 2015. The 5K Race which signifies the end of the challenge is being held on June 13, 2015.

The annual Fitness Challenge is designed to highlight the benefits of healthy eating and fitness. It also demonstrates how important health and exercise is, while showing residents that it can also be fun and exciting. All classes for the Fitness Challenge will be offered during the week at either the Susan B. Anthony School gymnasium, or at a various participating business. Weekend classes will meet at the beach or walk the Urban Trails. This will be our fourth year in sponsoring this challenge and the event organizers, Jodi Reath and Sean Mallet, are more excited than ever about some of the changes to the program. Prizes will be awarded to the top three weight loss winners which will include a 50” LED TV, a Kindle Fire, and a Fitness Basket.

The 5K Race will take place on June 13, 2015 at 9:00 A.M. at the Whelan School. Pre-registration for the race will be $20.00 and same day registration will be $25.00. The cost for Revere students and Immaculate Conception students will be $5.00. Last year’s race drew over 200 runners and race organizers, Julie DeMauro and Dr. Ann Marie Costa, are hoping to attract more race participants from across Revere and beyond.
