A recent study by Children’s Memorial Hospital found that Chicago Public School students are twice as likely to be obese than the national average. In fact, low-income neighborhoods are more likely to be obese. That’s why Boys & Girls Clubs has launched programs such as Healthy Habits that help young people embrace the importance of nutritious foods and a balanced diet. Many of our Clubs have updated fitness centers and exercise classes to create a fun group atmosphere for getting in shape.
Make a Difference and help Chicago’s youth give obesity the 1-2 punch with information and opportunities to eat right and exercise.
