  1. Updates

Golden State Warriors forward James Michael McAdoo joined our Playworks partner Lake Elementary and 425 students through an instructional and interactive clinic focusing on activities around physical fitness, healthy living, and nutrition. McAdoo and students cycled through four rotations: yoga, dance, basketball, and nutrition. McAdoo led students through the Get Fit pledge to encourage them to continue being physically active and make healthy choices.
