Project Life Change begins session

ELKINS — The Davis & Elkins College Department of Sport Science begins 2017 with its second session of Project Life Change for the academic year. The free program aimed at helping participants create a better, healthier lifestyle begins at 6 p.m. today on the college campus.

Meetings will take place every Monday at 6 p.m. for nine weeks in Eshleman Science Center room 400.

“This class is truly an opportunity for individuals to gain knowledge and start making positive impacts on their health and wellness,” said Mary Ann DeLuca, chair of the Davis & Elkins Sport Science Department. “Our greatest joy is seeing class alumni be successful and gain a more vigorous lifestyle.”

This is the fourth season D&E has hosted Project Life Change with grant support from the Snowshoe Foundation.

The program will cover nutrition, activity and overall wellness education in addition to pre- and post-assessment of overall health and wellness. Classes are led by DeLuca, along with sport science instructors Jennifer Riggleman and Amanda Larkin, as well as invited speakers.

Participants also receive a free weekly membership to Robbins-Madden Fitness Center and George A. Myles Pool on the college campus and the Elkins-Randolph County YMCA. Cards will be handed out at each session.

Project Life Change is open to participants of all ages in Randolph County and the surrounding areas.
