BENEFITING: HAYNES PROJECT INC
Today's youth are not as active as the youth of 10-20 years ago. Computers and video games can be blamed for a good deal of inactivity, but society is also starting to limit their options. You would be hard pressed to find safe and clean playgrounds in most communities and many children don't have affordable youth sports activities. These factors, along with many others, are presenting parents and children with the challenges of obesity and inactive lifestyles.
Our health efforts are focused on improving the health of young people. Poor nutrition and lack of physical activity are at the root of many public health issues affecting children, and The Haynes Project will work with partners and communities to provide young people with the knowledge and opportunity to improve their health while giving them the tools necessary to begin making positive changes in their health.
