Five Facts to Consider:

  • One out of two Native children born since 2000 will develop type 2 diabetes.
  • Obesity is the leading contributing factor to type 2 diabetes.
  • Type 2 diabetes may reduce a child’s life expectancy by 27 years.
  • 81% of Native adults are overweight or obese and 45% of 2-5 year olds are overweight.
  • Death rate of Native Americans with diabetes is three times higher than the general U.S. population.

NB3FIT WEEK GOALS:

  • Engage 12,000 Native American youth across the country in physical activity for a minimum of one hour that week
  • Promote drinking clean water
  • Promote eating healthy
The 2017 NB3FIT WEEK engaged over 10,000 Native youth through 91 registered sites and over 130 physical activity and health-centered events in 21 states!

 

This year we want to increase those numbers, and your help is vital in reaching our goal.
