A group of 100 children from the Housing Opportunities Commission and Community Services Foundation will be put through a one-hour training program with University of Maryland athletes before Saturday's men's basketball game against Georgia Tech.

The "Train with the Terps" program, which is part of a partnership between the athletic department and United HealthCare, will be held in the Comcast Center Pavilion between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. Participants will receive complimentary admission to the 2 p.m. game.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with United HealthCare in this outstanding program,” Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson said in a statement. “This important initiative focuses on educating children about the importance of staying active and making better food choices for a healthy lifestyle.”
