Rochester native and Knighthawks star forward Joe Walters has accepted the challenge to make Rochester healthier as the program’s spokesperson.  Walters will discuss the various ways to stay healthy, while sharing his own personal experiences and giving tips on how he and his teammates live as Healthy Hawks.


“Healthy Hawks,” which is sponsored by UR MEDICINE, is a program designed to educate students on the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. In the past ten years childhood obesity rates have tripled, and nearly 40% of children are overweight or obese.  This program includes a presentation by Joe Walters along with a question and answer session.  Students will receive booklets containing health facts, ways to stay active, recipes, a poster, and a voucher good for a Rochester Knighthawks home game.

All requests for player(s), dance team or staff appearances must be submitted in writing at least two weeks in advance of your event. Approved appearances will receive a confirmation telephone call from a representative from the Knighthawks prior to the event.
