August 13, 2012
(FISHKILL, NY) - The Hudson Valley Renegades will partner with celebrity personal trainer and fitness author Larysa DiDio on Sunday, August 26 to promote the health and well-being of families throughout the Hudson Valley. DiDio will conduct a 30-minute group "feel good" workout for moms, dads and families on the field following the 1 P.M. game at Dutchess Stadium.

"It was a natural partnership," said Didio. "Baseball provides the perfect medium for helping families and kids get healthier, together." During the post-game workout, the Renegades will also conduct an on-field kickball game led by Renegades mascot, Rascal.

"The Renegades are excited to partner with Larysa on this event," expressed Renegades General Manager Eben Yager. "As a family driven organization, we understand the importance of health, fitness and family involvement and believe this a great opportunity to continue fitness education in the ballpark."

DiDio will be available for a book signing as well as answering fans' questions on fitness, diet and family. Book signing and meet and greet will begin at 12 P.M. and continuing throughout the game. DiDio will also take over the Renegades Facebook page on Monday, August 20 from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M to expand fitness and health education.

"Fitness on the Field" will take place Sunday, August 26 as the Hudson Valley Renegades take on the Lowell Spinners at Dutchess Stadium. The first 1,000 kids will receive a Renegades backpack courtesy of New York 529 and K104.
