I started the Healthy Roots Fitness & Nutrition Camp (HRFNC)in 2009 to create an inter-generational healthy lifestyle program for youth and families that would help reduce the incidence of obesity and its related diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
As a longtime member of Mother AME Zion Church in Harlem, New York, I wanted to start this program at my own church first, and then later expand for the purpose of starting a city wide healthy dialogue between generations –
Parents, children and grandparents; about how families can work together to promote better physical fitness and nutrition habits in their daily lives.
Healthy Roots Fitness & Nutrition Camp is held twice a year for 4 weeks in Spring and Fall months. HRFNC workshops take place immediately following worship services at Mother AME Zion Church (James V. Community Center is connected to Mother Zion church located downstairs from the sanctuary.)
