Fire Fit program keeping kids in Pueblo active

PUEBLO, Colo. - Kids joined the Board of Pueblo County Commissioners for a little yoga on Wednesday.

The kids are volunteers with the Pueblo Fire Department's "Fire Fit" program.

The program is designed to help keep kids active and introduce them to new experiences.

“What we do with our kids in this community and how we treat our kids in this community and how we're trying to show those kids they're the future of this community, to get them in, for some of them this is the first time they've ever seen something like this, is huge to me and it's huge to our program,” said Tim Trujillo, Fire Fit Kid founder.

This program not only offers yoga classes, but it also has an obstacle course available and allows for tours of Fire Station 3.

You can join the next event on February 21 at 5:30 p.m. in the Central High School gym.
