Saturday At COSI's FIT FEST

*Laura Miller, of

This Saturday is going to be a blast! Up early and loading the truck, I will be heading downtown to the children's science center here in Columbus (COSI). Friend and founder of Laura Miller asked me to hang out with her for the day inside the cavernous and fun spot. Located inside the room where the Titanic exhibit has been for the past few months, Laura will be there to fight the good fight against childhood obesity..which is what her organization does.

*Luka enjoying the great outdoors. He loves parks that don't have a theme.
By educating the parents and the kids, she has made a tangible impact here in Columbus. With tips on proper nutrition, exercise, outdoor and indoor play, local parks and facilities that promote active lifestyles, cooking tips and much more, this is an organization I am always happy to help out.

I'll be there on behalf of roll: bikes to set up a killer "Parents vs. Kids Speed Trap," talk about the importance of wearing a helmet, proper bike fit, rules of the road, etc. ALSO, Laura asked Lyd to show up and sing her kids songs to the throngs from 10 to 11a.m.

*Lydia Brownfield being interviewed earlier this year by NBC 4's Monica Day.

I'm trying to get her to belt out "Puff The Magic Dragon," but I'll probably be the only one who has any idea how that song goes. I think they call that "old."

Stop by the COSI building Saturday! Just a few things to expect:
- Join us for the first Family Fitness Walk at COSI ( by Asics & Fleet Feet)
- Inflatable bounce house, obstacle course, joust, slides & more
- Participate on a scavenger hunt for your Passport to Health
- Free interactive activities for the family held every 30 minutes
- Meet & take pictures with former Ohio State athletes
- Cooking demonstrations and sampling of healthy foods
