New England Patriots players Rodney Harrison and Benjamin Watson and Patriots Hall of Famer Andre Tippett will join dozens of inner-city children on May 17th at the official launch of Body By Brandy 4 Kidz Gym in Roxbury.

The Patriots stars will participate in a fitness session with the children.

In response to a 300 percent increase in the rates of childhood obesity in the last three decades Body By Brandy 4 Kidz, a non-profit, in conjunction with the United Way of Boston, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Children's Hospital of Boston have teamed up to create this facility to help combat obesity among Boston area children.
