Base (Admiral Prout Field), where 52 children of service members

Diamondback bikes that they got to take home. Gordon, a Health
Ambassador for Rally Health, emceed and participated with the kids and
their families in the two-hour event, which was organized in
collaboration with the Armed

Anthony, Emerson Oronte and Heather Fischer, as well as staffers from
Diamondback. All of the activities at the event were designed to
showcase some of the simple steps families can take to live healthier
lives. The children and more than 300 family members had the opportunity

“What Are You Grateful For” wall. The event concluded with a 2-mile bike
ride led by the Rally Cycling pro cyclists for all the participants.

bike, and the good news about bikes is that they’re fun to ride and
offer a really great form of exercise,” said Gordon. “Today, as a Rally
Health Ambassador, I wanted to encourage families to move more and focus
on their health. But more importantly, Rally Health and I wanted to give
back to these families and say thank you.”
