From the Information Specialist's Desk: It's Not Whether You Win or Lose


Some may assume that this month's designation of "National Physical Fitness and Sports Month" by The President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports (http://www.fitness.gov) means it's for the serious athletes. But there are numerous adapted sports and activities that can be participated in a variety of ways: alone or with others, with little to no equipment, and some that are not even intended to evoke friendliest of competition. Come visit our website and locate a sport or activity that piques your interest and fits your style. So this May, it's not whether you win or lose, it's whether or not you play!
