Deedra Walker Penny, the Executive Director of The Essence of Fitness, is particularly proud to offer an event that parents can feel comfortable entrusting their children to while providing the best entertainment value for the dollar. Penny is also “extremely excited about this collaboration which is committed to ensuring that youth under their watch avoid the pitfalls and consequences of undernourishment. Undernourishment means someone isn't getting enough of the right types of food, vitamins and minerals; in contrast to malnourishment which means they're eating foods that are bad for them, AS WELL AS not having enough to eat. This is a very important work which augments our other programs and fulfills the mission of our organization. The Essence of Fitness has facilitated nearly 70 participants losing approximately 1,200 lbs during its 12-Week Intensive Weight Loss & Lifestyle Challenges.”

Students interested in applying for the Nutritional Scholarships may submit an application and YouTube video. Instructions can be found on the project website at: The application deadline is Wednesday, May 30, 2012.
