HOUSE OF BOXING & ATHLETES for EDUCATION KO Obesity at Las Palmas Elementary
In response to the increased numbers of non-active kids in our area, we hit the road to take fitness to them. HOUSE OF BOXING and Athletes for Education launched “KO Obesity’ at Las Palmas Elementary School in National City. The mission to “KO Obesity” is to educate kids in healthy food choices, “Chuck the Junk,” and to provide kids with fitness activities that will get them moving.
This week Professional Boxer, Antonio Orozco and HOUSE OF BOXING owner David Barragan worked with 153 kids and opened them up to new ideas in staying active and establishing healthy food habits. Along with volunteers, the kids also participated in a fun-filled circuit workout of jumping, pulling, running and skipping their way to fitness. Kids where later awarded with sports equipment for their great efforts. With sweat on their brow and smiles on their faces, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!
