I am most excited about meeting the Laker player and Laker Girls! This is like recess at my school because we ro-sham-bo for fairness.

Hundreds of Playworks Developmental Sports Leagues and Junior Coaches came out to the Seventh Annual Lakers Fit For Life Health Fair, presented by 24 Hour Fitness, on March 17 at Campus El Segundo for an afternoon of lessons in nutrition and fun exercise with the Laker Girls and Lakers players. Students came from ten schools in the Los Angeles and Inglewood Unified Districts, including Westport Heights, Grape St., Flournoy, Woodcrest, 68th St., Warren Lane, Joyner, Sunrise, 107th St., and West Athens.

The event began with a warm welcome from Playworks Southern California Executive Director LaVal Brewer, and a loud appreciation whoosh clap of positive energy to the Laker Girls and Laker Players Tarik Black, Jordan Clarkson, and Larry Nance Jr. Game stations with Playworks coaches were ro-sham-bo, foursquare/switch, watch your back tag, Grumps Island (tag), and dodgeball. The fair is the highlight of the Lakers Fit for Life initiative, which aims to educate the community and the youth about the importance of physical fitness and nutrition.
