Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Jackie Joyner-Kersee Inspire Famlies To Get Fit Together at 4th Annual Triple Play Fit Family Challenge


The Reed family, from Biloxi, Mississippi was named the winner of the 4th Annual Triple Play Fit Family Challenge, an annual family health competition hosted by Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the Coca-Cola Company and the WellPoint Foundation.  The family, whose father Wallace is deployed overseas, competed in a series challenge activities including a challenging obstacle course, Nutrition Quiz Show and family fitness routine. The Fit Family Challenge also empowered the Reed Family to take what they’ve learned in committing to a healthier style and apply it to a 5k fundraiser in their community where they were able to raise over $1,000 for the Red Cross and the Philippines Typhoon  Disaster. From left to right: Wallace Jr., Joy, Kali, Tracy, Andrew and Aviana Reed.
More than 200 families entered the challenge when it launched in October and five families were selected to compete in the Fit Family Challenge Finale Event on Saturday, January 11, 2014 in Los Angeles, hosted by three-time Olympic Medalist and BGCA alum Jackie Joyner-Kersee. The Triple Play program is sponsored by the Coca-Cola Company and the WellPoint Foundation and encourages young people and families to focus on making better food choices (Mind), increasing physical activity (Body) and spending more quality time together as a family (Soul).

A lot more people really need to read this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you are not more popular since you definitely possess the gift.
