While nearly one in five youth in the United States are obese, the rates of obesity vary greatly across racial and ethnic groups.  According to the latest findings, African-American and Latino youth carry the highest obesity rates, which significantly increases their risk for type 2 diabetes and hypertension.

South Carolina, ranks 9th in the nation with over 20% of youth ages 10-17 experiencing obesity and 17% of SC high school students living with obesity.   

North Carolina ranks 10th in the nation with over 19.8% of youth ages 10-17 experiencing obesity and 15.4% of NC high school students living with obesity.   

With a focus on on combating juvenile obesity in disproportionately impacted communities, our program promotes positive change through culturally-relatable engagement, instruction, non traditional fitness and the introduction of plant-based nutrition.
