Wednesday they will go around the Southside passing out water bottles and encouraging healthy behavior. They say the number one contributor of obesity in children is sugary drinks and the group says they want people to cut them out of their diet.
"A high-schooler started this so if you stop now, the sugary drinks being a habit, you can see changes in your skin and your waistline," said Laura Spivey, youth volunteer for Get Fit Dan River Region.
The group plans to give out 350 water bottles Wednesday.
