Hoops for Health Tips Off

Sky Assistant Coach Christie Sides, Forward Elena Delle Donne and Sky Guy spent the afternoon educating Corkery Elementary 4th-6th graders on healthy eating and fun ways to stay active. The gym was rocking as Elena, Sky Guy and students were up on their feet during the interactive assembly learning the importance of exercise and some fun ways to stretch and get their heart pumping through cardio. Coach Sides also taught the students about the 5 food groups and making smart choices, when it comes to eating and calories.

The assembly concluded with a special dance performance by Sky Guy and a check presentation from Rivers Casino, who made a donation of $20,000 to Corkery Elementary. Rivers Casino also provided a healthy snack of apples and carrots to the students who participated in the assembly.
