Sports and Fitness
Sports and Fitness:
Our goal is to bring no cost sports and fitness to low-income communities through providing lessons around healthy nutrition, effective exercise techniques and basketball skill development. We will partner with different community groups to educate young people on healthy nutrition and cost effective daily exercise routines. In return we hope to promote healthy decision-making around behaviors and lifestyle choices by raising awareness, providing education, improving communication, and/or connecting community members with culturally appropriate programs and services.
