Live Light Live Right Warrior Basketball Team Visits The Nets

Live Light Live Right Warrior Basketball Team traveled to the Barley’s Center to see The Nets crush the Denver Nuggets 116-111!  With Coach Martin leading the way via subway, the kids and some of their parents cozied up in their seats to watch the exciting teams duke it out on the court.  “What an amazing night we had!  All of the training our team has done over the last couple months came to life seeing these professional athletes doing the same drills and lay-ups we do during our practices. “The kids had a great time and it was great seeing them enjoy themselves,” said Coach Martin.  As the night began to wind down, the kids were given Nets t-shirts, towels and bobble head player dolls by The Nets Organization!   Everyone enjoyed being a part of a great night!  “I would most definitely recommend the Live Light Live Right Program to any parent whose child is struggling with their weight.  Especially to join the Warrior Basketball team!” said Kamilla, mother of Christian, age 10.

Live Light Live Right Thanks, The Nets Organization for their generous donation.
