BreakThrough Physical Therapy (BTPT) will have a presence at the upcoming fourth annual Brenner Children’s Hospital Brenner FIT 5K Challenge on Friday, September 12, 2014. The Brenner FIT Challenge is a community fundraiser organized annually to encourage families to learn about healthy eating and being fit.

Brenner FIT Challenge activities include a 5K run/walk, FIT Fun Run, and numerous hands-on activities. BTPT staff, including “Posture Man”, will be on hand at the event to encourage children to stand up straight and be fit. Tips and advice on how to stay active and healthy will also be provided for adults.

Proceeds from the event benefit Brenner Families in Training (FIT), which offers a family-centered, evidence-based approach to weight management. The program uses proven methods to improve the weight and health of children, while incorporating their entire families into the treatment process. The FIT program also focuses on changing habits and behaviors, rather than restricting diets and harsh exercises.

“We are incredibly excited to be a part of this year’s Brenner FIT Challenge,” said Cheryl Pfuender, PT, DPT, MTC, OCS, BTPT Winston Salem Clinic Manager. “It is a wonderful opportunity be active with the members of our community while benefiting a great cause. We look forward to sharing tips for staying fit and healthy and answering any questions!”

The event will take place at Wake Forest University’s Deacon Tower, beginning with the 5K run at 6:30 PM. The 5K costs $35 for participants, while the Fun Run costs $10. The FIT Fun Run will begin immediately afterwards. Registration can be completed online or in-person Thursday, September 11 from 4-7PM at Omega Sports in Thruway Shopping Center, or at 5:00PM before the event.
