Background of childhood obesity and why it's important:

- Nearly one out of three - of North Carolina children between ages 10 and 17 are considered overweight or obese

- One in five of U.S. Children and adolescents are obese, not just overweight —tripling the obesity rate from just one generation ago (Center for Disease Control).

- Less than half of U.S. children over the age of 9 get the recommended amount of exercise

- Overweight and obese children are 5 TIMES more likely to become overweight or obese adults

- Health consequences related to childhood obesity include high blood pressure and high cholesterol, diabetes, issues with breathing, joint problems, liver disease and depression.

- Children who are overweight or obese are 3-6 times more likely to be bullied than their peers who are not overweight.

What can we do about this? We have a mission!
