All out efforts produce Gold Medal results!  On Friday 10/14/16, the Robert and Joan Lee Club participated in the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s National Fitness Competition (NFC), a program designed to inspire kids and teens to achieve tangible and short-term fitness goals.

The one-day event allowed members to participate in various fitness contests, cheer on their friends and have lots of fun. Along with promoting positive competition toward developing the grit,tenacity and resilience members need, each activity presented an opportunity to build confidence and competence.

“Childhood obesity is a growing problem, and through programs like the National Fitness Competition, we are encouraging daily exercise and goal setting among our Club members,” said Jim Clark, president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “Thanks to generous support from partners like Nestlé, we are encouraging our kids and teens to lead a life of health and well-being, and putting them on a path to a great future.”
