La Chat Kermesse 2010 Fitness Challenge Champions
On Saturday the 19th of June 2010 La Chat had its annual Kermesse. The ill advised weather reports didn't keep people from coming out and enjoying the food, great atmosphere, people and festivities. I was fortunate enough to be invited by the lovely ladies at the PTA, Linda Spencer and Paige Finger, to run a Fitness Challenge Booth. We had over 40 kids participant to be the 2010 Kermesse Fitness Challenge Champion in their respected event.
There were three diffent activities set up based on age groups. For the 6-9 year old we had an obstacle course which consisted of a crab walk, jumps over cones, a ball toss and finally a sprint to the finish. The 11-14 year old category had a triple standing broad jump for their event and this was the event with the most participants. Finally for the 15-18 year olds we had a press up competition. Participants were to try to get as many press ups as they could within 60 sec. This competition also got some participants in the 11-14 category that wanted to test their press up strength endurance and proved to be very exciting at the end of the day.
All in all it was a great day with the rain holding off until the end of the day. I wanted to thank all the kids that participated for their great attitudes and effort. Congratulations to the Fitness Challenge Champions which are listed below along with the following top 2 best efforts.
15-18 yr old Boys Press Up Champion
