PDL

01 June 9:19 am

You think you learned a lot about staying healthy and fit throughout your days in school? Well why not bring your best to JELD-WEN Field on Friday, June 1, for the final Health and Fitness School Day, presented by Providence Sports Care Center in 2012 starting at 9 a.m.

On this Friday local school kids from the Portland Metro area will invade JELD-WEN Field once again just as they did last week where they set a Premier Development League (PDL) record with 8,029 in attendance as they saw the Portland Timbers U-23s win their third straight match over the Kitsap Pumas 4-0.

Last week kids in had the opportunity to learn from local doctors about ways to stay healthy by not smoking or recognizing health issues that may effect your friends or family by Dr. Jane and her Rebels. Team doctor Dr. Beckerman gave kids the steps to CPR and other life saving actions.

To top it off the excitement of learning ways to stay healthy and fit, you will get to see the first place PDL Timbers U-23s play Vancouver Whitecaps FC U-23 at 11 a.m.

So put your best bet on the pitch and show us just what you have in that healthy body of yours. Who knows? You may learn something new to boot.

Tickets for Friday’s match at $7 and are available for purchase at the JELD-WEN Field box office.

It’s always great to stay healthy throughout your life. Whether that’s through eating healthy to committing time to go out and enjoy some quality time kicking a soccer ball around with your close friends.

Today the Portland Timbers U-23s will welcome in over 7,000 local area school kids to JELD-WEN Field for the first of two Health and Fitness School Day, presented by Providence Sports Care Center.

The day will feature events and games from over 16 educational tables ranging from yoga for kids to careers in health care. Along with learning about health and fitness, attendees will have a chance to feel the excitement of the Timbers U-23s battling their Premier Development League Northwest Divison rivals Kitsap Pumas at 11 a.m.

With all the push to keep kids fit and healthy, this type of event is one step forward to open the eyes of over 7,000 kids on just how you can achieve a healthy mind and body. 

Tickets are available too should you want to take a long lunch and come out to support the U-23s. Pick some up at the JELD-WEN Field box office. If you miss today's match, the next Health and Fitness School Day is June 1 here at JELD-WEN Field when the U-23s take on the Vancouver Whitecaps FC U-23s.
