Several of the Chicago Cubs’ charities have teamed up to create a new initiative geared towards encouraging children to get children active, called the Move Fitness Challenge.
The challenge, a program and contest, began earlier this week and runs through Dec. 1.
According to the Cubs’ release, the Fitness Challenge aims to provide educators with resources to promote physical activity in the classroom while empowering kids in the Chicago area to develop ideas to keep themselves, their schools and their communities active for healthy bodies and minds.
Cubs rookie Kyle Schwarber and Clark the Cub visited Hawthorne Scholastic Academy in Lakeview to help the program Monday.
