On Thursday May 30th, 2013 the LVSportz Foundation joined forces with the Jump for Joy Foundation, Hypnotix Dance Crew, Former UNLV QB Jason Vaughan from Rebel Camps and others to test a new concept called Fitness is Fun! The goal of the assembly was to introduce a group of 3rd, 4th and 5th graders to why they should be active in fitness related activity and to introduce them to a wide variety of options to do so.

First up was Hypnotix Krew for an AMAZING dance performance! They explained a little about what they do and then had a short Q & A session with the students.

Second up was Coach Jason Vaughan from Rebel Camps who gave the kids some personal insight to how fitness has been important in his life and shared his "Power Down" method to encourage activity. He also sent a little love to the Doris French teaching staff as well.

Next up was Shanelle Kunz who spoke about nutrition and gave the kids an awesome way to remember what foods are healthy for us and how some affect our body. Thank you Shanelle!

After nutrition came our Executive Director who explained how sports related fitness is important as well as maintaining your academics all while being safe to "Stay In The Game". We also shared some of our great upcoming free events designed to allow them sample different sports without pressure or cost!

Topping it all off was Angel Escamilla from the Jump 4 Joy Foundation that shared their background then got everyone up off the floor and moving with a little dance training! He also shared some events they too have coming up soon.

We hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did as we know the students loved it too!!! We look forward to possible expanding the outreach to several more schools next school year with some exciting additions!
