(Columbia, SC) – The Xtra Inch, in partnership with Select Health of South Carolina’s First Choice Medicaid health plan, presents First Choice Fit® Marcus Lattimore youth football camps this summer for boys and girls ages 5-17. All First Choice Fit camps will be accompanied by a community health fair offered to campers, their families and the public at no charge. The first 25 First Choice Medicaid health plan members to register for each camp will receive full camp scholarships.
“First Choice Fit camps improve gridiron skills in a positive and encouraging environment while also challenging youth to develop as individuals,” said Lattimore. “Good health, strong values, dignity and respect are the keys to success on and off the field.”
