"Road to the Right Track" Team Learns and Promotes Healthy Living for Youth

On Wednesday, November 11, 2015, officers from District D-14 (Brighton) and youngsters participating in Road to the Right Track, an Allston/Brighton area track team made up of kids aged 10 to 18, got a special treat when a nutritionist from Whole Foods, Nicole Matthews, showed the team how to make a healthy yet delicious snack—hummus!

Sponsored by PAL (Boston Police Activities/Athletics League), Road to the Right Track is a group of youngsters, officers, and special guests that meets every Saturday at local college tracks to work out for an hour. The team meets year round for an hour a week and was formed in order to promote proper workouts. For example, this week’s workout included a stretching demonstration by the team physical therapist, Gail Monaghan.
