healthy-hawks.jpgThe Rochester Knighthawks and their players and staff have accepted the challenge to make Rochester healthier. Knighthawks defenseman Brad Gillies will discuss the various ways to stay healthy, while sharing his own personal experiences and giving tips on how he and his teammates live as Healthy Hawks.

“Healthy Hawks,” which is sponsored by Wellington Steele & Associates and Power Train, is a program designed to educate students on the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. In the past 10 years childhood obesity rates have tripled, and nearly 40% of children are overweight or obese. This program includes a presentation by a Knighthawks player, along with a question and answer session. Students will receive booklets containing health facts, ways to stay active, recipes, a poster, and a voucher good for a Rochester Knighthawks home game.
