DISNEY XD STARS TEAM WITH KID VIEWERS AND NFL, NBA AND WNBA STARS FOR DISNEY'S MAGIC OF HEALTHY LIVING "TRYATHLON," A SPECIAL AIRING MONDAY, AUGUST 13 ON DISNEY XD

The special is hosted by Hal Sparks and Tyrel Jackson Williams ("Lab Rats").

Disney XD's "TRYathlon" is part of Disney's Magic of Healthy Living, a program that inspires kids and families to lead healthier lifestyles by making nutritious eating and physical activity simple and fun.

David Levine, Vice President and General Manager, Disney XD Worldwide, said, "Our Disney XD stars are trying something new - a triathlon with a twist -- to encourage young viewers to get active and to challenge themselves."

On DisneyXD.com/TRY, users can participate in the "TRYit Challenger" where kids and parents can pledge to challenge themselves in new ways such as trying a new dance move or a swim stroke or adding a piece of fruit to a meal. Kids and parents are encouraged to participate to help the campaign reach one million pledges.

Beginning Tuesday, July 31, a new "Summer TRYathlon Mash-up" game will launch on DisneyXD.com where players can create their own game by choosing from equipment and playing fields. Kids can practice with the online version and then print and take the instructions to the playground to play with their friends.

The "TRYathlon" teams are:

Team "Kickin' It"

Leo Howard and Olivia Holt with Texas fan, Nick Carew and coach Arian Foster.

Team "Lab Rats"

Billy Unger and Spencer Boldman with Oregon fan, Jenna Hoiland and coach Candace Parker.
