Lighten up for Life! A New Competition Begins September 1st!

Join the Firefighters of WNC & Jared Fogle from Subway in a new season of Lighten Up 4 Life

You’re invited: Lighten Up 4 Life Kickoff Wednesday September 1st 10am at Pack Square in Downtown Asheville - Across from the Fire Station

Special guests include:

Jared from Subway, Mayor Terry Bellamy, Eddie Fox & Sharon Green 99.9 KISS FM,
Josh Michael & Kim Mathews STAR 104.3 and many more!

Volunteer and full time firefighters from across Western North Carolina are joining the challenge. These professionals, heroes to our communities, face unique barriers to staying healthy. They work long and often erratic shifts. Their sleep is often interrupted. Those based at stations have to cook for large groups who traditionally enjoy less-than-healthy meals. And when the bell rings, the physical demands placed on firefighters responding to a call are extreme. Their specialized gear and self-contained breathing apparatus can weigh up to 75 pounds.

Because firefighters know the importance of staying in shape and eating healthier, departments across the mountains have decided to join the Lighten Up 4 Life Challenge this fall.

They are asking you to join too, in getting healthy and in setting an example for the children whose lives they protect. ..

Now Let’s Get Started! Here’s How You Can Join the Lighten Up 4 Life Challenge

Yes firefighters are real hero like soldiers. They sacrifice their day and night to secure our lives. Even they don’t have fix leisure time.
