Wholistic Growth for Generations
A non profit dedicated to educating and promoting healthy lifestyles for all youth
Childhood obesity continues to be a leading public health concern that disproportionately affects low income and minority children. Children who are obese in their preschool years are more likely to be obese in adolescence and adulthood and to develop diabetes, hypertension, hyperglycemia, asthma, and sleep apnea.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, childhood obesity has more than tripled over the past 30 years. The prevalence of obesity among children aged 6 to 11 years old increased from 6.5% in 1980 to 32 % in 2014. Obese youth are more likely to become obese adults and have risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as high cholesterol or high blood pressure. Children and adolescents who are obese are at greater risk for bone and joint problems, sleep apnea, and social and psychological problems such as stigmatization and poor self-esteem.
Our organization would like to collaborate with you to create awareness of the deadly obesity epidemic destroying the lives of our youth. The WGG Leadership Program will create a healthy culture in every community we touch. With full collaboration this program will create Wholistic Growth for Generations. So let’s Get Fit and Stay Fit because it truly is a lifestyle!
