The Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council has teamed up with BREC to host a Youth Fitness Challenge Saturday in an effort to fight childhood obesity as well as promote active and healthy living among Baton Rouge youth.

Participants are asked to bring non-perishable food items that will be donated to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank and will complete a few park cleanup projects, including painting pavilion poles.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the BREC Scotlandville Parkway Park, located near the intersection of 72nd Avenue and Howell Place Boulevard.

Registration begins at 9:30 a.m.
