Venus to Visit Boys & Girls Club
Tennis superstar Venus Williams has teamed with EA SPORTS Active to motivate Americans to get active through the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA), a President’s Challenge program of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition (PCFSN) that challenges youth to do 60 minutes and adults to do 30 minutes of physical activity, five days a week for six weeks.
