Play4Health is a grassroots chronic disease prevention and wellness program designed to engage and educate kids, their parents and communities about obesity, its link to chronic disease and the importance of leading a healthy, active lifestyle. With the rise of childhood obesity, Play4Health is on a mission to change the way kids think and act about health and wellness.

Play4Health is an educational program that combines a once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity to “play” on a Minor League Baseball field through a day of fun fitness activities followed by a game.

Kids are assigned to an activity station that focuses on the “triple play” for prevention and wellness which includes exercise, nutrition and other healthy behaviors.  Each participant will also receive a goody bag to take home along with a healthy snack.

The clinic’s primary instructor will be Rafy Oquendo, an expert in the health and wellness field.

The CEO of the All Star Training Center, Oquendo develops exercise and wellness programs that promote the well-being and healthy lifestyles of people of all ages. As the creator, spokesperson and health and wellness expert for the Play4Health initiative, Oquendo believes the right plan and tools, and a positive, confident outlook are critical to becoming healthier and more active. He combines the proven exercise science based training programs and methods he uses for professional athletes with his knowledge and experience to design exercise programs to help people at any fitness level to succeed. His philosophy is that fitness is a journey and not a destination.
