Kids & Pros, started by NFL alumni Bobby Butler and Buddy Curry in 2002, is a 501©3 nonprofit grounded in five core life principles called Game Changers for Life: Sportsmanship, Teamwork, Integrity, Perseverance and Excellence.
The coaches (one for every 10 kids) include former NFL players, college players and local high school and youth coaches. Kids & Pros offers the only free, character-based, non-contact football skills camp in the area. Founder and executive director Buddy Curry, a former Atlanta Falcons player, will be on hand to share coaching tips and encourage players’ motivation.
Megyn Jefferson, CEO and Health Coach of Flux Nourishment, will deliver the second of the 2018 Encourage Health Education lectures on “Cornerstones of Healthy Living.” Jefferson will present on simple lifestyle changes that lead to a fulfilled life above the line of wellness. Jefferson will teach on adopting a diet that has a plant slant, buying seasonal and local produce, eliminating produce waste and how to prioritize eating whole foods in a culture that emphasizes convenience.
The lunchtime lecture will remain on Tuesday, June 26 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Demere Center for Living, located at 6000 Business Center Dr, Savannah, GA 31405.
Flux Nourishment will receive this lecture’s $1,000 Encourage Health Grant, so this lecture will be an opportunity for participants to learn the philosophy behind one of the nonprofits the Encourage Health lectures support.
Registration has been filled for this presentation, but the lecture will be livestreamed on Healthy Savannah and the Enmarket Facebook pages. For more information, please visit www.healthysavannah.orgor www.enmarket.com.
Any high school or group that offers team sports in the Savannah area is invited to apply for free custom-fit mouth guards for their upcoming season courtesy of Angela Canfield, a local dentist who operates Sandfly Family Dental in Savannah and Premier Dental Designs in Rincon.
Canfield is accepting applications until Monday, July 2 for the 2018 Canfield Mouth Shield Program that will provide mouth guards in team colors, valued at up to $10,000, for the team chosen for the program.
“Giving back to the community and protecting young mouths is a priority for me and my team,” Canfield said. “I choose to donate the gear because these children deserve to have healthy smiles and research shows that wearing custom-fit mouth guards while playing sports reduces the risk of severe injuries to the teeth and jaw.”
