FORT WAYNE, IN (Indiana's Newscenter)-- They say there's success in numbers and today we learn that's especially true in a good workout routine.

If you want to achieve a goal, tell a friend and make them hold you accountable.

That''s exactly what Kevin Roe and Roger Mitchell did and their story is inspiring many others to get up and moving.

This story is one in a series to help get you ready for Indiana''s NewsCenter's Fort-4-Fitness Challenge.

Chances are you or someone you know needs to make a lifestyle change.

Maybe you have high cholesterol, need to shed a few pounds, or you battle high blood pressure. Whatever your challenge, one thing's for sure: being active will help.

September 27, 2008, hundreds of people will fill Fort Wayne's streets in the first "Fort 4 Fitness" half marathon.

We're challenging you to be among them, and until that day, Indiana's NewsCenter will be helping to inspire you to do just that.
