BloodDrive Brian Breland Leakesville

A personal message from Encore Rehabilitation-Leakesville Clinic Director Hope Backstrom

We will be sponsoring a blood drive on February 14 in memory of Brian “Yogi” Breland. I am told by the United Blood Services representative that there is a critical need with only a two day blood supply available. The units of blood donated in this memorial blood drive will be credited to both hospitals to help decrease medical expenses. Please help spread the word in your schools, churches, and communities so that we can show strong support for this family in memory if their loved one

SportsFit-Leakesville 5K Postponed

colorrun

 

For two years, SportsFit of Leakesville has sponsored a 5K to promote health and fitness and to benefit local schools with PE equipment. This 5k has taken place the first week of February. This year the date will change.

Due to poor weather conditions in December, Leakesville Elementary School had to postpone their 5K Color Run to this Saturday, Jan 20th. As it would be so close to the date we normally have our 5K, we will reschedule ours to a later date.

We encourage you to support LES in their 5K Color Run this weekend and support all our local schools.

We will announce our Sportsfit 5K at a later date.

Happy New Year from Encore Rehabilitation and SportsFit- Leakesville

Grant Garretson and Tucker Zehner, members at our SportsFit gym in Leakesville MS, have been dedicated in their training for the Marines since the day we opened our doors.  Day in and day out, they’ve always given 100%.  Grant and Tucker are two of the most deserving and respectful young men we have ever seen, and we’re so proud of them and all they will accomplish in the Marine Corps!

Grant is a 17 year old, Senior at Greene County High School and will receive his diploma in May.

“I chose to enter the Marine Corps because I wanted to be apart of an elite organization that represented something bigger than myself. I wanted to take part in something that showed honor, courage, commitment, and selflessness. It also seemed like a good way to start off at 17 and will hopefully help me provide for a family one day, God willing.  I chose SportsFit because it was a local gym with good equipment and very helpful staff members. I would recommend the gym to anyone I know.”

James Tucker Zehner.png

Tucker is a graduate of Greene County High School and is 18 years old.  He boarded a plane today for Boot Camp on Paris Island.

“I joined the military because its always been something I’ve wanted to do since I was little and I joined the marines because they’re the best. Also chose sportsfit because its local convenient and they have a very friendly staff!”

Thank you, Grant and Tucker, for serving our country!
