Please join us in combatting one of the most prolific health epidemics facing Native American youth- Childhood Obesity!
Your generous support directly supports Native American youth under the age of 24 (currently 40% of the total Native American population). On average, half of our Native children are overweight or obese. If children represent our future, Native communities are going to see almost half of their people living with chronic diseases, living shorter lives and plagued with negative socioeconomic outcomes related to obesity. This could be a generation of children that may not outlive their parents. The epidemics of childhood and type-2 diabetes will have major economic impact on tribes and Native families if not dealt with immediately. Your support is critical.
