Navy bases across the Pacific will kick off Fit Family Week on Saturday.

The event, now in its second year, features a variety of family-oriented activities designed to promote fitness and fun.

"We’re trying to encourage families to get active together," says Kyle Rhodus, Yokosuka’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation athletic director.

Eight separate Navy locations across the Pacific are scheduled to take part in the April 4–12 event.

"It’s something we’ve always done here in Yokosuka, but last year the event went regional and it was very successful," said Rhodus.

While the activities are available year round, he said the program’s goal is to promote family participation.

"We want to create an environment of wellness within the family," Rhodus says.
