WALTERS TO VISIT PITTSFORD SUMMER CAMPS
08/09/2014 - 11:24am

(August 9, 2014)…  Rochester Knighthawks forward Joe Walters will be back in the community on Monday, August 11th, as he brings the team’s “Healthy Hawks” program to two Pittsford summer camps.

Walters will kick off his day at 10:00 a.m. by visiting 90 kids at the camp located at 35 Lincoln Ave. The Rochester native and three-time National Lacrosse League champion will then travel to 431 Thornell Rd. to talk with another group of 115 campers. Walters said he is excited about sharing this new community program with children in his hometown.

“I am looking forward to talking with the kids at the Pittsford summer camps. Anytime we go out to a summer camp, we always have a blast and the kids learn a lot of good information,” said Walters.

Healthy Hawks, which is sponsored by UR Medicine and Power Train Sports Institute, is a program designed to educate students on the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This program includes a presentation by 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.

If you would like to request a Knighthawks’ Healthy Hawks appearance, please go to www.knighthawks.com/healthyhawks or contact the Knighthawks office at (585) 454-4295, ext. 3041.
