Two Utahns and Primary Children's Hospital have been honored by the Utah Governor's Council on Health and Physical Fitness for their outstanding contributions to fitness in the state.

Henry Marsh, Bountiful, was recognized for the example he has set as a world-class athlete for the past decade and his fitness education contributions on radio and television; and Marcia Gallenson, Salt Lake City, was honored for her efforts as a former member of the council and her contributions as president of the Utah Chapter of the Association for Fitness in Business.The hospital was recognized for its financial and administrative contributions to the Governor's Family Fun awards program.

New chairman of the council, Paul Sabin, Holladay, told participants at the awards ceremony held recently at the Hill Field Officers Club that council members have many challenges confronting them, including the declining level of fitness among youth, fewer adults maintaining regular physical activity programs, an expanding aging population and rising health care costs.
