GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn - In this month's Feeling Good Minnesota segment, we are focusing on curbing childhood obesity and a program that encourages children to make healthy choices.

BLEND Walk-A-Thons are a healthy, active fundraising model that asks students to collect donations for their school and in return they can participate in a day of celebration and physical activity. The events include walking but schools are creating additional opportunities for students to engage in a variety of fitness fun!
