Take the United Way Healthy Kids Pledge

Studies show the obesity rate among children has nearly doubled in the last 10 years. Obesity can cause health problems in kids today and also leads to problems, such as diabetes and heart disease, as they grow to adulthood.

Together, we can reverse the epidemic of childhood obesity.

United Way promotes youth health and wellness through fun, effective and practical ideas for groups of all ages, interests and abilities.

Make a change in your school, neighborhood, place of worship or community by launching one of the ideas in the Healthy Kids Community Activation Center. 

You don't have to be a super-athlete, a super-chef, or a super-anything to get kids moving more and eating better. Tackling this epidemic will make a lifelong difference. Share your interests. Your passion. Give. Advocate. Volunteer.
