“I was part of the Boys and Girls Club, and just, the lessons they teach you — a lot of life lessons that I still use to this day that I learned at the Boys and Girls Club, so it’s an honor to be here. I’m glad I could be here, and I love staying active, so if I can get out here with the kids, like I said, I’m not going to make anybody throw up. It ain’t a promise, but I’m excited to come out here and run around,” said Jones.

More than 200 volunteers from Kohl’s led the kids through different activity stations.
