It may not feel like Summer but Bellin Health is already preparing for the Bellin Run promoting fitness in Green Bay. 

A kickoff event was held Tuesday morning at Lambeau FIeld. 

Fireman Rob Verhelst stopped by to help motivate people to get ready for the race. 

Verhelst was a rescue worker for more than a week after 9-11 and has since gone on to set world records for running triathlons in his fire equipment.

"Bellin supports the Packers and the Packers are Green Bay. It just all supports everything else," said Rob Verhelst. "Just getting off the couch and saying, 'you know what, I'm going to do it this year.' Even saying to your whole family, 'let's do it as a family.'"
