Slowly but surely, the
days are getting longer, and as thoughts turn to spending more time outdoors,
we’re reminded of the importance that living a healthy lifestyle can have on a
child’s well-being. Learning how to be
active and eat right is just as an important part of a child’s education as
math or science or history.
That’s why we are
excited to partner with NBA All-Star/Boston Celtics captain Paul Pierce to
present the All-Star Health & Fitness Festival, to be held this Saturday at
Paul’s alma mater, Inglewood High
School, in Los Angeles. As part of Paul’s Truth on Health initiative, the
festival is designed to encourage and help youth make informed decisions about
living a healthy lifestyle.
Bing will also donate
600 Paul Pierce Activity Watches to students participating in the Health &
Fitness Festival. These watches, which
track their daily exercise, allow the students to participate in Pierce’s
FitClub34 (a rewards-based fan club turned “fit” club) and earn great
prizes for their commitment to fitness.
Our friends over in
Xbox are also getting in on the fun. There will be a Microsoft Kinect
for Xbox 360 set up at one of the fitness stations, demonstrating how being
active can be a lot of fun too (we love the boxing game!).
Want to get in on the
fun? Courtesy of Xbox, we’ll be livestreaming the event through Facebook. Go to
submit your questions to Paul and other NBA stars in attendance for a chance to
see them answered during the live stream.
