THE STORY:

YMCA of Greater New York wrote -

The Fit for All program is designed to address the NYC growing epidemic of childhood obesity. In a study of more than 600,000 students conducted during the 2007-2008 school year, more than 21% of NYC school age children were considered obese and another 19% were classified as overweight. Compared with children nationwide, NYC children are more likely to be obese or overweight (5.5% higher than the national average), and certain neighborhoods such as Harlem, where Grosvenor Neighborhood House Y is located, report that 48-49% of the children 6-12 years old are overweight or obese. There is a severe need for this program, which will incorporate physical activity and nutritional education into a program offered at our Y, in a fun and safe environment.
