6/28 Cubs help kids be active

On Tuesday, the Cubs athletic trainers, Marlon Byrd and Ted Lilly will host a PLAY campaign event at Wrigley Field. PLAY stands for “Promoting a Lifetime of Activity for Youth” and is a public awareness campaign developed by the Professional Baseball Athletic Trainers Society (PBATS) in 2004 to combat child obesity.

Through a series of fitness programs at all 30 Major League ballparks, PLAY was designed to encourage kids throughout the country to be active, eat right and sustain a healthy lifestyle. Cubs head athletic trainer Mark O’Neal will run the event, which will feature 60-70 Chicago area youths, ages 11-15, from the neighboring Sheil and Gill Parks.
