Phillies make stops at two lucky local schools this march

Area schools to receive Phillies visits all in the name of fitness

Students from two area schools who are excited about getting fit in the Phillies Phitness program presented by NovaCare Rehabilitation will lace up their sneakers for a visit they are not soon to forget. The students will join their school's physical education teacher, Phillies front office staff and NovaCare Rehabilitation Trainers for a unique interactive program designed to put the "phun" into fitness.

Highlights of each visit include:

  • Children will take part in various activities including relay races, jumping rope and ladder drills, all in the name of fitness. 
  • Participants will learn about steps they can take now to help ensure a healthy future.
  • All participants will receive a Phillies Phitness water bottle.
