The Saucony Run for Good Foundation is committed to improving the lives of children by helping to prevent and reduce childhood obesity.
In the United States, approximately one in three children ages two to 19 is overweight or obese. Organizations such as the Healthy Out-Of-School Time (HOST) Coalition, RTI International (RTI) and the National Afterschool Association (NAA) have implemented standards to promote a healthy lifestyle among our nation's young people.
PreventObesity.net is an online network offering free tools, services and support to the people and organizations that are working to ensure children everywhere can eat healthier and become more physically active.
