That’s right. Two years ago I launched the Truth on Health campaign that encourages young people to lead healthier lives. It had also been something I was passionate about but after hearing and seeing all the reports of how bad it had become I felt it was time to do something myself.
My hope was that many kids like basketball and the NBA and I would be able to connect with them in a way other role models couldn’t. I spent a lot of time thinking about how I could actually get kids to lead healthier lives and make sure they were doing it. It hit me one night on the road in a hotel in Houston. What if there was a watch that tracked your activity? And what if that watch could then give you a code after the activity you could log onto a website to keep track of? And finally what if that code equaled points which could be used to redeems prizes?
FitClub34 and the Paul Pierce Activity watch were born that day. Now the kids who are in my program can exercise and know they are not only staying healthy, but they can also be rewarded with cool prizes they actually want. I on the other hand can always make sure I know exactly where the kids stand in their goal.
Now I may be the idea guy (ha ha), but I also need your help. Your donation can help offset the cost of these watches to under privileged children (often the hardest hit in the obesity epidemic) and allow them to lead healthier more fulfilling lives.
