Focused Fitness is proud to announce its newest partnership with the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation! The Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation (HWCF), formed in 2009, is a CEO-led organization whose national, multiyear effort is designed to help reduce obesity—especially childhood obesity. In just five years, HWCF members have already removed 6.4 trillion calories from the marketplace, which represents a 78 calorie reduction per person, per day. It is a first-of-its–kind coalition that brings together more than 250 retailers, food and beverage manufacturers, restaurants, sporting goods and insurance companies, trade associations, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and professional sports organizations. HWCF promotes ways to help people achieve a healthy weight through energy balance—calories in and calories out. It focuses its efforts on two critical areas—families and schools—through its Together Counts™ campaign which is used by over 15 million students across the country.
The Together Counts™ Program offers an incentive program including, Healthy Playground Makeover Sweepstakes. where anyone can enter on behalf of a school to win $30,000 in cash and prizes as well as a new playground. We want you to sign up for a chance to win today! They also have a grant program aimed at Pre-K. It is called the Smart From the Start grant that is awarded to preschools and Head Start Centers that promote healthy habits. The winning preschool is awarded $20,000 as well as a prize pack of books.
HWCF is a great resource for teaching kids about healthy eating and living. All of the Together Counts™ resources are free and open source. Make sure you watch the video below and check out all the HWCF has to offer!
