COPE helps Savannah become healthier

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Children and their parents are getting a boost to stay healthy in the new year.

The Savannah non-profit, COPE, or Childhood Obesity Prevention and Education, is partnering with Visalus Independent Promoters to sponsor local youth 10 years and older that need a little help to get in shape. The goal is to help children and their parents. One of the organizers has a challenge for the whole city.

"I challenge Savannah, you know, I challenge Savannah to lose 10 pounds. You know, if you have been putting it off for years and you have set 12 resolutions, and have yet to have them come true, challenge yourself. You know, for us, we have a huge organization, where as soon as you go public, you are going to have like 75 comments on Facebook of people cheering you on, and the best thing they can do is just set realistic goals, you know, do 10 pounds at a time," said Ashley Guerra, 2 Star Ambassador for Visalus."
