Club to host a tour stop for the Triple Play Mobile Tour, which is getting youth active across the country this summer
Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows will host a tour stop for the Triple Play Mobile Tour, which is getting youth active across the country this summer. The tour will stop at the Neil Road site (3905 Neil Road, Reno), Thursday, July 9 at 10:30 a.m., to engage hundreds of kids in activities that will get them active and moving – all while working towards the goal of logging getting more than 10 million connections with kids.
Sponsored by The Coca-Cola Company and Amerigroup Foundation/Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation, the mobile tour is part of the national program Triple Play, Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s signature health and wellness program. With more than 3 out of 10 young people considered obese or overweight, early education and active programming for youth is even more critical for a healthier tomorrow. Since its inception in 2005, Triple Play has made more than 9.2 million connections with kids and continues to grow with more programming for kids and Clubs each year. The tour is working towards this goal of 10 million connects by August 9.
The Triple Play program motivates kids to be healthy by providing nutrition and health education and more access to healthy foods, and encouraging avoidance of risky behaviors and a lifelong commitment to fitness. Through Triple Play, Clubs will build the next generation of leaders.
