    Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley & Buffalo Wild Wings Team Up to Support At-home Activities & Fitness for Local Youth

    Agoura, CA – As part of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America ALL STARS annual grant program, sponsored by Buffalo Wild Wings, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley (BGCGCV) has received 200 sport balls to help local Club kids participate in a healthy activity at home.

    Both the WHO and CDC recommends a minimum of 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous-intensity physical activity everyday for youth. With kids being at home and parks and playgrounds being closed, being active for 60 minutes becomes that much harder for some youth, especially those who are disadvantaged.

    “Some of our young people may not have the space or the equipment at home, they normally would use to be physically active,” stated Dr. Crystal Nāone, President/CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley.  “We are grateful to the ALL STARS program and the support of our local Buffalo Wild Wings for the sports balls and everything they do to support our Club’s sports programming,” stated Nāone.

    Created by the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and Buffalo Wild Wings, the ALL STARS program is dedicated to helping youth develop the skills needed to become stronger, self-sufficient individuals later in life.  Studies show that team sports have a tremendous impact on youth and their social, emotional, and physical development into adolescence and adulthood.  ALL STARS sports leagues are designed to expose kids to the benefits of participating in team sports and belonging to a team. 

    Buffalo Wild Wings has helped over one million kids and teens play team sports at Boys & Girls Clubs around the country.  In 2019 along, more than 400,000 Club youth participated in organized ALL STARS sports teams.  Playing sports is about igniting a passion, belonging to a team, sportsmanship, teamwork and building self-esteem.  Every child should have the chance to experience organized sports and learn skills that will help them compete both on the field and in life.

    The BGCGCV will receive a combination of footballs, soccer balls, and basketballs.  For more information on the Boys & Girls Cubs of Greater Conejo Valley, visit www.bgcconejo.org.
