The GenYouth Foundation and Discovery Education invite you to join New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez on Tuesday September 27th for a webinar as he and other hosts introduce ideas on nutrition and fitness that are easy to apply at school, at home and at play. Mark will lead Central Park East Middle School students in Harlem through fun activities to get students thinking and moving. Submit your students’ questions ahead of time and during the presentation. Participating classrooms will also have a chance to win autographed prizes.
