More than 23 million children and teenagers in the U.S. are obese or overweight, a statistic that health and medical experts consider an epidemic. While obesity rates have soared among all age groups in this country, obesity is a particularly grave concern for children. Childhood obesity puts nearly one-third of America’s youth at early risk for Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and even stroke – conditions usually associated with adulthood.
It’s not too late for our children. Every September (Childhood Obesity Awareness Month), students, educators, physicians, and parents take a stand and fight back with jumping jacks. This year, you can help bring the message back to your state, city, school, church, workplace and home with the SWEAT MAKES CENTS jumping jacks challenge.
