"I'm really looking forward to my new role," Carroll said, "because I truly believe that inspiring young people to eat better and move more can be a catalyst for turning their dreams into a reality."

Author and speaker Kevin Carroll will join the Alliance for a Healthier Generation as a “Champion” in the effort to eliminate childhood obesity.

Carroll, who speaks to more than 75,000 people each year, will help spread the message to young people about the importance of physical activity and healthy eating. The Alliance is also aligned with celebrity chef Rachael Ray, whose non-profit Yum-O! Foundation is an Alliance Champion, and eight-time NBA All-Star Paul Pierce, who serves as the Alliance’s National Athlete Spokesperson.

"Kevin’s passion for physical activity and play is a perfect fit with our efforts to help parents, schools, businesses, and kids transform our culture and create healthier communities,” said Ginny Ehrlich, executive director of the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. Founded in 2005 by the American Heart Association and William J. Clinton Foundation, the Alliance is a not-for-profit organization that works to positively affect the places that can make a difference in a child’s health. Its goal is to reduce the nationwide prevalence of childhood obesity by 2015.

Carroll is the founder of Kevin Carroll Katalyst/LLC and the author of three highly successful books, including "Rules of the Red Rubber Ball." As an agent for social change (a.k.a. the Katalyst), it is Carroll’s “job” to inspire businesses, organizations and individuals – from CEOs and employees of Fortune 500 companies to schoolchildren - to embrace their spirit of play and creativity to maximize their human potential.

"I'm really looking forward to my new role," Carroll said, "because I truly believe that inspiring young people to eat better and move more can be a catalyst for turning their dreams into a reality."
