We invite you to join us as we prepare for the Inaugural Marcedes Lewis Football Camp in Jacksonville, an event which is open to youths living in and around our community. The camp will be held Saturday, June 7th, 2014, and is free of charge to boys and girls ages 7 through 17 years of age. This event provides children and young adults with a comprehensive health and fitness experience, including specialized coaching in all facets of football. Participants need not have prior football experience, as the main purpose is to instill an understanding of the benefits of physical fitness. We offer strength and conditioning instruction by specialists and emphasize ways for participants to maximize their athletic ability. Marcedes leads a staff that includes high school coaches, active collegiate players, and professional athletes, all of whom interact with participants throughout the day. Marcedes and his staff discuss the importance of education with children and share personal anecdotes meant to inspire and motivate kids towards a brighter future.
Our Foundation is a non-profit organization that promotes youth sports as a key aspect of developing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It was established by Marcedes Lewis, whose own success with sports led to the fulfillment of his childhood dream. The Foundation encourages children and young adults to participate in youth sports to facilitate personal, social, and academic growth. The annual Marcedes Lewis Football Camp is a yearly culmination of these goals. In addition to receiving specialized sports instruction, participants are also treated to health and fitness education, collaborative learning opportunities, and the experience of listening to motivational speakers. Lunch is provided free of charge, and every participant will receive a t-shirt, drawstring backpack, and an autographed action photograph of Marcedes Lewis, embossed with our sponsors’ logos.
Childhood obesity continues to persist, and we believe our Foundation is helping lead our youth back towards a healthier, more active lifestyle. We hope you will become as passionate about our mission as we are.
