FIGHT FOR A FITTER FORT – Message From The Mayor

A commitment to developing healthier lifestyles was unveiled recently as part of an innovative program created by Fort Wayne resident Chris Blake and endorsed by my office.

Operation F4 – Fight for a Fitter Fort (OPF4) is a community wellness initiative to encourage individuals to implement lifestyle changes that include fitness, nutrition, wellness, and activities. OPF4’s mission is for residents to lose a collective 500,000 pounds by the end of 2016.

How OPF4 works:
-Sign up as individuals or teams and enter current health information as directed.

-Individuals will learn how to structure exercise and eating for healthy results.

-Individuals/teams will be able to log in and track progress. Calculators will automatically tabulate the City’s collective results.

Resources for individuals/companies to get connected with OPF4:

I’m encouraged by the Operation F4 concept and am looking forward to success stories as we work together as a community to enhance the health of our residents and improve the quality of life in Fort Wayne. This is an engaging and innovative initiative that will feature many fun and challenging activities. I strongly encourage you to give this a chance and be an active participant. I know I will be!
