Sixers tip-off Fit for Fun Program

The 76ers Fit For Fun program, sponsored by Mid-Atlantic Dairy, focuses on encouraging kids to live a healthier lifestyle through a balanced diet and by staying active.

Ambassador of Sixers Basketball World B. Free will tip-off this program at the Paley PAL Center (5330 Germantown Ave., 19144) on Wednesday, May 27 at 4:30 pm. This is the first of six scheduled programs.

“Leading a healthy life starts at a young age,” Free said. “By participating in this program, we will show kids that maintaining a healthy diet and staying active are not only important, but can be fun at the same time.”

Within the 60-minute Fit For Fun program, students will take part in fast-paced activities and discuss ways to eat healthy. Free will then lead the kids through a series of stretches and a three-station rotation of basketball drills and classic gym class games. The program will conclude with an obstacle course challenge and Sixers prizes.
