November 16, 2010

Tennis superstar Venus Williams has teamed with EA SPORTS Active to motivate Americans to get active through the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA), a President’s Challenge program of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition (PCFSN) that challenges youth to do 60 minutes and adults to do 30 minutes of physical activity, five days a week for six weeks.

To help institute this program and make it a reality for many, EA SPORTS will be making donation of $50,000 worth of EA SPORTS Active 2, a new interactive fitness program, to Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

Venus Williams; PCFSN Executive Director Shellie Pfohl; Boys & Girls Club of America Senior Director, Sports, Fitness & Recreation Wayne Moss; and Peter Moore, President of EA SPORTS will be available to:
