Episode 183 – The Value of Sports in our Health and Wellness Dr. Marianne T. Ritchie
Pickleball: Relish the Game – Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the US. Convenience and low cost make it attractive for many, but also means that players may underestimate the physical demands on their bodies, which increases risk for injury. Overall, the benefits of staying fit, having fun, and making new friends far outweigh the likelihood of serious injury. Tune in to learn how to maximize your safety.

Your Real Champion® – Adapt and Thrive
Andrew Austen is a natural athlete who grew up playing soccer, football, baseball and golf. But sports were a bit more challenging for Andrew than other kids because he was born without his right forearm or hand. His parents never made him feel “different” and he finds strength in his mother’s words,”Struggle is growth.” He takes on one obstacle at a time and believes there’s always a solution. He now plays adaptive golf and makes videos to inspire kids with disabilities and anyone who has “can’t” in their vocabulary. This week, Andrew completed the 100 Hole Hike for Youth on Course sponsored by the Gold Association of Philadelphia. The goal is to provide access to the game of golf to young people and support college scholarships. No surprise…of the 100 holes, Andrew made par on 60 holes! Support Andrew in his mission with Youth on Course. Learn more at www.100holehike.org/, gapgolf.org, and youthoncourse.org
Each week, we highlight the Real Champions in your life! Your family, friends, or colleagues who go the extra mile to help others in their community.
