Description

The “Cancer Control Month” Kick & Roll Open Gym, our first of three sessions in Houston, Texas, took place this past Saturday, April 18th, at our co-founder George Kiel’s alma mater, Cypress Creek High School. With the exception of last year’s first Kick & Roll Classic 3-on-3 Basketball Event, our “Cancer Control Month” session was our biggest yet, as over 100 persons piled into the venue. In addition to our most consistent sponsors and supporters – the Josh Childress Foundation, NiceKicks.com and Stance Socks – Houston’s very own Sneaker Summit contributed in a big way as well. With April being National Cancer Control Month, our focus to was to attack the aspect of “fighting cancer in the kitchen.” Not only does eating a healthy diet rich in fruit and vegetables help, but also cooking with healthier spices and herbs that are rich in anti-cancer phytochemicals can help in regards to prevention. These types of spices and herbs – turmeric, ginger, rosemary, thyme, mint and parsley – help promote normal inflammatory function and protect your DNA. That said, we required our participants and urged our spectators to bring with them at least two brand new containers of the above-mentioned spices/herbs in which we will donate to the Houston Food Bank. A total of 100 containers of spices and herbs were collected at the end of the event. Thanks to everyone who came out to support our first affair in Houston. May 16th marks our second of three events in the aforementioned city.
