FORT JACKSON, S.C. -- For the fourth straight year, the Fort Jackson Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation Fitness Department will take a team to the annual Cooper River Bridge Run/Walk in Charleston.

Join the "Fitness Meets Nature" Club April 2 as club members participate in this 10K, which draws thousands of participants. Free transporation from the Solomon Center to Charleston will be provided to the first 50 people who sign up. Food, registration and other incidentals are the responsibility of each participant.

The FMWR bus will depart from the Solomon Center early that Saturday and head to Charleston for the race. Once the race is over, the group will stop at a local seafood restaurant for a victory meal before heading back to Fort Jackson.

This is a great opportunity to get in a good physical workout for the day, as well as a great finisher for participants of the FMWR 2011 Fitness Challenge. In short, this is a great opportunity for all of us to mingle with fellow exercisers and then enjoy a great Charleston meal.
