Hoops for Health, Fighting Obesity and Type-2 Diabetes

Jermaine Collier, Program Manager of S.A. Mobile Fitness, a program of United Charitable Programs (UCP), is striving to make a healthier tomorrow for our nation’s children by teaching kids the positive outcome of an interactive healthy lifestyle.

San Antonio, TX, April 25, 2014 --(PR.com)-- With over half of the population in San Antonio, TX being obese, fitness advocates and health experts like Jermaine Collier, Program Manager of S.A. Mobile Fitness, want to put an end to this epidemic.

Collier’s program, S.A. Mobile Fitness, will be hosting Hoops for Health, a two-day fitness event on May 2nd and 3rd. The event will feature a three-on-three basketball tournament for youth ages 10 to 18, a shooting competition, a dunk competition and more.

Professional players and coaches will be in attendance to speak about the importance of work ethics in sports and in life to be successful. There will also be physicians on site to speak about the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle, obesity and type-2 diabetes.

“I think that the presence of professional players and coaches will inspire and give guidance to the you that want to go to the next level on how physically fit they have to be successful in basketball,” said Collier. “My objective is to fight obesity and to provide a safe, fun, and non-discriminating environment where youth and adults can exercise, build relationships, gain nutritional information, and learn strategies to live an overall healthy lifestyle.”

During the Hoops for Health event, Collier hopes to raise $5,000. The funds raised will go towards S.A. Mobile Fitness events throughout the year. Hoops for Health will be held at Lou Hamilton Community Center located at 10700 Nacogdoches Rd, San Antonio, TX 78217. There is $25 registration fee.
