I am a high school student at Edinburg High School. I volunteered at the boys and girl club so i could help the comunity little did i know the comunity helped me as well. H-E-B was the sponser of the activities on that day and i think the theme was health and wellness they had five stations they were Zumba, Football, soccer, a nutrition lab, and basket ball with some of the UTPA broncs finest (man those guys were tall). i learned what to eat and to keep active. once i learned those techniques i passed them on to the kids who were participating and all the kids had a great time dancing Zumba with the zumba instuctors and in general.
