Today, there are over 10,000,000 estimated obese and overweight American kids. These children experience ongoing frustrations that are associated with excessive weight. It’s hard—sometimes they just don’t know where to turn.
C.H.O.I.C.E.S., the Center Helping Obesity in Children End Successfully, Inc., is a grassroots organization founded in April 2002 that has been fighting childhood obesity in America for the past decade. Their mission is to spread awareness and help raise a solution for the growing epidemic of childhood obesity around us every day. C.H.O.I.C.E.S. faces a real problem in American households, and offers real solutions. Their solutions include lifestyle changes, health values, and resources which are provided through the charity for these children and their families.
What We’re Doing To Help
It’s intriguing that in today’s day of technology advanced medical marvels, we have no cure for obesity. We do, however, have the ability to make choices. C.H.O.I.C.E.S. offers this ability to make choices, and the team at Outdoor Makeover supports them 100%. We’re pleased to support an organization like C.H.O.I.C.E.S., which promotes weight management and lifestyle changes through nutrition education, peer socialization, physical activity and community involvement.
The Outdoor Makeover team supports the efforts of C.H.O.I.C.E.S. in regards to overweight children and making a difference in our great nation. Outdoor Makeover was pleased to donate a mini makeover package at $2,500 value to a C.H.O.I.C.E.S. auction which helped raise a total amount of $2,750.
