Inception & History

Launched in 2011 by WNBA Legend Sue Wicks and Harvard Business School graduate and Division I athlete Corinne Nevinny, Fight 2B Fit is built by athletes who found the tenants of sportsmanship, teamwork, and persistence vital to lifetime success.

Fight 2B Fit's philosophy of building health and the joy of success simultaneously informs a broader approach to childhood wellness. The curriculum covers nutrition, anatomy, physical fitness, mental health, anti-bullying actions, sportsmanship, and the environment. Over the course of four weeks, children are introduced to these topics and participate in challenges that ask them to turn their knowledge into actions.

Fight 2B Fit has now completed is tenth nationwide program with over 5000 kids ages 8-11 having participated. We are excited to be expanding our program into Florida as we continue to grow in California, New York, New Jersey, West Virginia, Nevada, and Massachussetts.

March 2014
"It's not often you walk into a middle school and see a bunch of 7th graders doing sun salutations. But that's exactly what's happening at Mendive. Kids are participating in the Fight 2B Fit program. It's a nationwide effort to get 5th, 6th and 7th graders moving their bodies and learning about nutrition."
October 2012
The Fight 2B Fit Challenge is led by former WNBA All Star And Rutgers Basketball player Sue Wicks. Ms. Wicks is currently a sports ambassador for the US State Department. The 2BFit Challenge is a six week team competition. The Fight 2B fit website presents challenges to teams who score points as they accomplish various tasks. The idea behind the challenge is that a simple task repeated over the course of time becomes a habit. The categories are established to focus on body, mind and spirit and will include physical activity, healthy food choices and social responsibility. Kids will be able to measure their individual progress, their team’s progress and the progress of competing teams on a daily basis. Upon completion of the six week program, a reward ceremony will be held to honor the Winners.
