Who Benefits?

  • The event benefits Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention.
  • You benefit because you get to participate in a group workout.
  • Kids and young adults benefit by engaging in a healthy, fun event… Topped off with a concert.

Many believe that if you keep adolescents and teens busy with sports and other activities they are less likely to get into trouble. Trouble can be defined as crime or drug use. Trouble can also be defined as sexual activity which can lead to pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Focusing on fitness is a healthy distraction. And proceeds from the World Fitness Day goes toward preventing teen pregnancy.

It’s a win-win proposition: you workout and you help prevent pregnancy.
