Today, Disney XD will air the first Disney "TRYathlon," featuring three kids teaming with their favorite Disney XD stars and professional athletes -- NFL star Arian Foster (Houston Texans), NBA star Kevin Love (Minnesota Timberwolves) and WNBA star Candace Parker (Los Angeles Sparks) -- serving as their coaches. The teams will compete in a series of challenges that will test their skills, utilize teamwork, endurance and abilities. The "TRYathlon" is part of Disney Magic of Healthy Living, a program that celebrates kids and families discovering fun ways to be healthy.
“With the increase in obesity and diabetes in our youth, I was really moved to be a part of this Disney TRYathlon, in an effort to encourage kids worldwide to live active lives," Foster said in a statement. "The stability of our tomorrow resides in the health of our children, I really enjoyed myself and I hope we inspire someone out there.”
