Since third grade, leading a healthy lifestyle inclusive of nutritional eating, a regular exercise regimen, and basketball has been second nature for newly signed NBA D-League player Marcus Hill. In contrast to Hill’s formative years, U.S. Obesity rates continue to rise in our youth and necessary measures to circumvent this silent killer must be put in place to send tomorrow’s leaders on a promising path today. Youth Determined to Succeed (YDS), a program founded in 1999 by Melvin Anderson, a former Pittsburg Steeler, was created in an effort to guide our progeny through the fundamental steps of health and wellness and teach them how to combat childhood obesity on a day-to-day basis. On October 1st, YDS kicked off an 11-week activity packed program entitled “Kids 4 Health“ (K4H) in Minneapolis. Alongside Anderson this past weekend at the K4H camp, Hill was on hand to offer his wisdom and guidance on how to transition into a healthier way of living both mentally and physically.
