Did you know that a community’s health is significantly impacted by social and economic factors? That’s right, your ZIP code may have more to do with how healthy you are and how long you live than your genetic code does! That’s why we’re working to fund innovative solutions designed to remove health barriers at the community level, and we want you to be a part of the solution.

Fall in Love with Cool Weather Fitness

Fall in Love with Cool Weather Fitness

Fall is here, and the change in the weather may have you cheering or jeering. Cheering if you’re an outdoor workout fan and you’re DONE with the summer heat. Jeering if the waning daylight and cooler temps make you want to go into hibernation mode (we feel ya). Either way, fall can be a perfect time to rediscover nature and recommit to being more active.

Two months ago, thousands of you asked the CEO’s of five of the largest fast food restaurants in the country to offer healthier kids meals. Together, we sent thousands of messages. And, your efforts are making a difference. Earlier this year McDonalds promised to make their kids meals healthier by decreasing sodium and fat levels, while offering water and low-fat milk in place of sodas. This is a great first step, but we are far from done!
