The Seattle Storm Give “Shout-Outs” to White House Fans and Followers for Keeping Kids Healthy

Yesterday, the WNBA champion Seattle Storm visited the White House to be honored by President Obama and to host a basketball clinic for young people on the White House basketball court as part of the First Lady’s Let’s Move Initiative and the WNBA fit program. 

While they were here, Storm players Sue Bird and Krystal Thomas took a few moments to say thank you to our facebook fans and Twitter followers for doing what they can to help kids stay healthy.

We asked what you were doing to help, and we got some great responses:

@Scouted we run @JayDocClinic
Melodie Sivadon Reader: Provides healthy meals to kids summer school program in our area

Ivan Jokain-Witcha: I work with a group of teachers and community members in creating a school garden

In between basketball drills, the Storm players thanked facebook fans Melodie Sivadon Reader, Colleen Rain, Susan Marie, Ivan Jokain-Witcha, Stephanie Anna Cochran, Carla Roundtree and Elizabeth Sims and Twitter followers including @scouted who are doing great work in their communities.

Don’t forget to Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and you might be the next to get a shout-out!
