The Alliance for a Healthier Generation works to empower kids to develop lifelong healthy habits by ensuring the environments that surround them provide and promote good health. The Alliance's work with schools, communities and businesses has reached more than 25 million children, with a focus on young people who are at an increased risk for unhealthy lifestyles.
Childhood obesity has almost tripled in children and adolescents in the past 30 years. Today, about 1 out of 3 children in the United States is overweight or obese, putting them at risk for serious health problems. Research shows a strong link between a young person’s practice of healthy habits, including a good diet and regular physical activity, and an improvement in their overall life outcomes. At the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, we are working to create a nation where children can thrive.
Team Healthier Generation is a network of athletes across the country who believe every child deserves an equal chance to lead a healthy life. Together, we are taking action to make this belief a reality in all communities by raising funds & awareness for the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.
