Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

A local school is taking part in a national challenge to live a healthier lifestyle.

Volunteers and members of the community were out at Rivermont Elementary Saturday spreading mulch  around the new asphalt track that surrounds the playground..

The school was able to amp up the fitness track with money from the county and Home Depot.

It's all part of the Presidential Fitness challenge. The project organizer hopes community members take advantage of healthier options.

"We'd love the community to come use it, just having fun with their kids, getting exercise, kids can use the playground while parents walk or jog around," says Dan Basler.

Last year one student from Rivermont made national honors in the Presidential Fitness challenge -- the hope is this track with inspire more.
