With all the talk about scandals and cover ups lately, let’s take a moment to love on some athletes who are paying it forward. How cool is this? Olympic greats such as Dominique Dawes, Evander Holyfield, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, and Gail Devers are giving more than 200 youth coaching and interactive lessons designed to help them understand how sports and physical fitness can enhance their lives. The event will take place in Atlanta as part of the Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs of America‘s Triple Play Summer Games. Triple Play is Boys & Girls Clubs of America signature health and wellness program and the mission of the Summer Games is to motivate youth to get active and live healthy through physical activity.
