FROM HEALTHY SUNDAY 12-17-06
We live in a city where only 30% of high school youth can pass the physical
fitness tests. More and more kids choose to immerse themselves in video games and snack
treats rather than kick a ball or raise a sweat. The parents of these kids aren't doing
much better. Obesity is a serious problem across the board and must be dealt with
Outdoor skating is a fantastic way to get a
great workout while having a great time. It's time for you to get away
from the TV, push away from the table, get out of that car and work that body in a way
that's fun.. Recent improvements to the road surface on Kennedy Drive in San Francisco's
Golden Gate Park will greatly increase the opportunities to experience healthy
recreational activities that can get you in great shape. We are planning an event
will give people new innovative ways to fight the war against obesity while having a great
time in Golden Gate Park.
||On Sunday, March 11, 2007, the California Outdoor
RollerSports Association will present "Healthy Sundays in Golden Gate Park".
Skaters, cyclists, skateboarders, runners, walkers,
even hula hoopers will come out to San Francisco's Golden Gate Park and do
a lap for life on newly repaved J F K Drive. The event will feature an inline skate
race at 8AM, a public bladewalk at 8:30 A.M. and free skate lessons from 8AM to noon.
Come out to get fit, have fun, live healthy and
discover the C.O.R.A. SkateFit
|The SkateFit Program is based on the President's Fitness
Challenge developed by the Presidents Council on Physical Fitness & Sports. The
challenge of the program is to make a commitment to physical fitness through active and
regular participation in outdoor skating activities. We have shaped it into a program
that introduces new skaters to outdoor fitness and recreational skating and provide a
fitness challenge to other skaters looking to practice, train, lose weight or just have
fun in Golden Gate Park.
People can also use skates to participate in
Governor Schwartzenegger's call to fitness. Skaters can accumulate and log
their hours on the web More info at http://www.presidentschallenge.org/
|The course will be entirely on the closed portion of JFK Drive
between Conservatory Drive East on the eastern end to the waterfalls on Kennedy Drive on
the west end. The main setup area will be located on JFK Drive and Bowling Green
Drive near the Conservatory of Flowers. We will have about 100 pairs of skates, pads,
helmets and other safety gear. We will provide skates for those who will need them
for lessons and the bladewalk
|We want the public to experience how the new surface
creates "recreational asphalt". The smooth paved road closed roads become
a safe recreational paradise for runners, walkers, skaters, cyclists and others who are
looking to get away from the television, escape the pressures of the fast paced city
lifestyle and get healthy and fit.in Golden Gate Park.
