From the tablet of Corey Modrowski (Nobody has Desktops anymore):
As a person who has spent the majority of his life overweight, I understand how disheartening it can be to be ridiculed for being over weight. It wasn't until I discovered plant-based eating could I finally shed the weight that had held me back for so many years. Then I found Crossfit and was able to train my body for what will be a lifetime of fitness. I would like to see others given the opportunity to transform their body. Please help us reach our goal, not only will you be helping a young child change their life for the better, but you can be sure that me and three of my friends will row until we can't feel our arms that day
The Jordan Levin Childhood Obesity Foundation (JLCOF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was founded in 2009, with the goal of fighting the childhood obesity epidemic one child at a time. The foundation is currently helping to finance and assist overweight/obese children in accessing education, exercise and nutritional counseling. Its development was a response to the growing rate of obesity in children. The mission of JLCOF is to raise the awareness of the huge childhood obesity epidemic that is sweeping the nation, through research and education.
The foundation's goal is small; to send economically challenged overweight children and their parents to local hospital programs. The program is a 10-session comprehensive program for children ages 3 through 18, who are overweight and would benefit from a multi-disciplinary educational program that focuses on improving health through nutrition, exercise and behavior modification.
