Lancaster, Texas (PRWEB) May 21, 2013
Yup… On The Move (YOTM) World Foundation is hosting a celebrity basketball game on Sunday, June 30 in Corsicana, Texas at Navarro Junior College. The proceeds from this event will go to building a youth community center on the east side of Corsicana. YOTM will also kick off its schedule of outside summer events soon.
The basketball game is just one example of how YOTM benefits underprivileged youth in the urban communities of Dallas and Arlington. YOTM also supports these youngsters by offering health and fitness sessions. They will also assist students with academics and hold seminars to educate communities on childhood obesity.
YOTM relies on fundraiser events for the resources it uses to educate youth on health, wellness, nutrition and fitness, as well as sponsor sports camps in urban communities.
The health fitness programs have been developed in partnership with children’s charities around the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Other YOTM programs include seminars at inner city schools to encourage students to complete their educations and adopt healthy eating habits; weekly health fitness programs at All Church Homes – a non-profit organization for at-risk children; and special events like the 2012 Christmas fundraiser event, which collected thousands of toys for underprivileged children.
Non-profit organization fundraiser events for 2013 have already included a 3-on-3 basketball tournament at Navarro Junior College. YOTM has also developed a program to support the 21st Century Community Learning Centers after school initiative in Arlington.
