YMCA of the Golden Crescent Promotes Healthy Lifestyle and the Importance of Physical Activity through the 2013 Corporate Cup
Victoria, TX – YMCA of the Golden Crescent has a unique way of promoting community-wide interest in fitness and health activities in local families’ busy lives. The 27-year-old tradition of the YMCA of the Golden Crescent Corporate Cup brought local businesses together for a friendly competition through fun physical activities. For participants and supporting family members, the event was a great way of rethinking the importance of physical activity and healthy life style. This year, 22 teams of local business employees from Victoria, Dewitt, Lavaca, Jackson, Calhoun, Refugio and Goliad counties competed against each other in volleyball, basketball, bowling, golf, tug of war, and three-legged sack races. While these classic games are fun, they are also a way to combat obesity. Research shows that at least 30 minutes of daily exercise can reduce weight and is a proven way to protect against other chronic diseases.
