Henkel Helps and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation
are working together to get kids fit.
We’ve all heard the numbers—one third of American children are overweight and 75 percent are not getting enough daily exercise. Obesity rates have tripled in the past 30 years—a trend that means, for the first time in our history, American youngsters face a shorter life expectancy.
To address the issue, the Alliance’s Healthy Schools Program supports more than 14,000 schools nationwide to transform their campuses into healthy environments where physical activity and healthier foods are available to students before, after and during school.
The Alliance provides participating schools free expert advice and connects them with a variety of resources—including opportunities like Henkel Helps Get Kids Fit—so they can build healthier campuses for students and staff.
Anyone can help cultivate a healthier generation of children today so that we will have a healthier America tomorrow. Learn the big and small ways you can get involved to change a child’s future.
