September 19, 2005 - Rossella Bagnato, Superintendent of Academic Programs for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board dropped by KidsFIT, the City of Greater Sudbury's newest high-tech fitness centre for kids recently and was put through the paces by Fitness Instructor, Joelle Martel. KidsFIT is an innovative, exciting and educational fitness facility that focuses on improving the lives of children by encouraging a healthy lifestyle.
