More news on the march...! Hill Harper is building himself a comfy brand... actor, author, lawyer, community activist, motivational speaker... soon he'll be running for office.

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- "Live Life and Win!" from African American-owned TV Producer/Distributor Connection III Entertainment Corp., has combined forces with the Manifest Your Destiny Foundation, a non-profit youth organization established by actor Hill Harper, to present an empowering series episode showcasing astonishing determination, acts of courage and perseverance from teenagers learning how to overcome their fears to achieve their dreams.

Nationally syndicated, "Live Life and Win!", now in its premiere season and available in more than 91 million U.S. homes, is an FCC-Friendly, educational/informational weekly half-hour TV series with a goal to inspire and enlighten young viewers with inspirational teen success stories, as well as segments focusing on the arts, school & sports, exercise & nutrition and health & wellness. 

On this week's episode airing throughout the weekend of February 10th – 12th, "Live Life and Win!" Segment Reporter Eric Keyes experiences first-hand how the Manifest Your Destiny "Summer Empowerment Academy" program provides at-risk teens with the motivation to do things they never thought possible - even while perched 80 feet in the air!  Called the "Leap of Faith," Eric and the teens climb 80 feet to the top of a narrow pole only to jump through the air while suspended from ropes to try and grab a hold of an open ring dangling 8 feet away.  As just one of the amazing feats of focus this group accomplishes, the episode highlights each teen's ability to believe in themselves, go after anything they want, and realize success.

According to Cleveland O'Neal III, Founder/President/CEO of Connection III, who created"Live Life and Win!" and serves as the series' Executive Producer, "Showcasing the Manifest Your Destiny Foundation and the accomplishments of their teen participants fits perfectly into our goal to present a program that inspires and enlightens young viewers with inspirational teen success stories."

Actor Hill Harper, best known for his role as Dr. Sheldon Hawkes in the long running CBS-TV series CSI: NY, stated: "Our holistic mission is to fortify youth and their attitudes about themselves and their futures; specifically as it pertains to their academic lives.  We are pleased to be a part of programming like 'Live Life and Win!' that uplifts our youth and empowers them to reach beyond their limitations."
