Gardens, healthy living fill January

January has been a busy month for the Team Up Challenge as our semifinalists and Team Up Challenge Scholars kicked off this semester with a bang!

San Antonio Spurs center Aron Baynes shared his cooking expertise with Team Up Challenge students from Estrada Achievement Center's "Garden to Table" project. The group felt the heat at the San Antonio Food Bank Community Kitchen when they prepared pizzas using fresh ingredients from the food bank's gardens. Their project focuses on using their school gardens to prepare affordable, nutritious meals as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Our San Antonio Rampage players got in on the healthy living when defenseman Steven Kampfer and goalie Michael Houser explored the "H-E-B Body Adventure" with Colonial Hills Elementary's semifinalist group. The students will take what they learned and spread the knowledge at their community outreach events promoting health and wellness.

Assisting our semifinalist groups are our Team Up Challenge Scholars, who met last week with Silver & Black Give Back's board president, Bobby Perez, and talked about being leaders in their community.
