The Boys and Girls Clubs of America is endorsed by so many celebrities like Denzel Washington, Jennifer Lopez and more for good reason. It’s a place that many of those celebs learned life, sports, and social skills as young people. Olympian Jackie Joyner Kersee is no exception. The gold medalist in the pentathlon was a member growing up and she’s involved in the Clubs to this day.
She’s part of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America’s latest initiative to encourage families to be healthy and fit. The fourth annual Triple Play Fit Challenge culled five families who made significant changes in their lifestyle down from 200 families from the Boys and Girls Club around the country for a competition and talent show in Los Angeles. In addition to the all expenses paid trip to L.A., and other prizes, the winning family will receive another trip to the U.S. Olympic Training Facility in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
