OXFORD, Miss. -- Members of the Ole Miss men's and women's basketball teams participated in the first fitness clinic of the "Move Mississippi" initiative last week at the Boys and Girls Club of Oxford.

The program was created to combat child obesity by educating youth and parents about the benefits of physical fitness and living a healthy lifestyle.

Men's basketball players who participated in last Wednesday's program include Nick Williams, Jarvis Summers, Aaron Jones and Martavious Newby. They were joined by women's basketball team members Courtney Marbra, Amber Singletary and Gracie Frizzell.

Future programs will spread to area schools and include Rebel student-athletes and coaches from other sports.

"Move Mississippi" is a component of the Rebels Kids Club and is featured on the new Rebels Kids Club website, rebelkidsclub.com. The interactive site provides fitness and healthy eating tips for the entire family. Children can see how they stack up against other kids as well as their own family members on the site's leader board.
