Fitness All-Stars Program

Medical City Healthcare is proud to partner with the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation to bring the Fitness All-Stars Program to kids in North Texas.  This program is designed to inspire and motivate kids to eat healthier, get moving and live a healthy lifestyle. Through a series of engaging videos and fun in-school visits, the Fitness All-Stars Program supplements 5th grade physical education curriculum and offers kids the tools they need for a lifetime of healthy habits.

Patients at Medical City Dallas Hospital and Medical City Children's Hospital didn't get to visit with Rangers players this year, but were happy to receive a donation of gowns from the Starlight Children's Foundation. Rangers outfielder Nick Solak also shared a message with patients and their families.
