Fitness. Pass it on.

Friday, February 22, 2013

Saw this on a billboard for
"Fitness. Pass it on."

Here is the back story:

Linda Fontren lost her sister to complications of obesity, diabetes and cancer.
She motivated her community in Mississippi to lose more than 17,000 pounds!
"If you want to be happy, you have to be healthy."

I think this lady is absolutely terrific!
