Making Informed Decisions to Live a Healthy Lifestyle


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
http://www.facebook.com/xbox and
submit your questions to Paul and other NBA stars in attendance for a chance to
see them answered during the live stream.

And to stay up-to-date
