Bluffton, S.C (PRWEB) February 25, 2012
Teddy Herrera, a passionate advocate who is currently on a bicycle ride across America to raise funds and awareness to the plight of childhood obesity, presented an inspirational talk to students of MindStream Academy (http://www.mindstreamacademy.com) this week. Both organizations share a mutual interest in inspiring and encouraging youths and families to take action for themselves and others through education and proven solutions.
“We invited Teddy Herrera to speak to our students and staff on his ride across America against Childhood Obesity,” says Sarah Stone, MindStream Academy Program Director. “His mission was not only aligned with ours, but we were excited to hear his message of inspiration for our students and families.”
MindStream Academy along with Mr. Herrera shares a similar core mission in their belief that ‘one child can make a difference.’ Herrera began his journey to inspire kids by embarking on a 10-month, 22,000-mile bicycle tour to raise awareness for childhood obesity around the nation. With the goal of reaching 500,000 youth, Teddy plans to hold over 500 speaking engagements at elementary, middle and high schools in over 100 cities nationwide to demonstrate to our youth how one dream and goal-setting can change the world.
The academy is an innovative, co-ed boarding program where teens achieve healthy weight, get fit and learn lifelong principles of health, fitness and overall wellness. MindStream adopts the approach that to take control over one’s life, the focus is in healing the whole person, just not weight loss.
MindStream Academy is now taking enrollments for their summer program which begins June 11th, 2012. Families seeking more information or to sign up immediately are encouraged to call 1-843-757-2003. The academy uses a comprehensive mind, body, spirit approach that is very effective in helping teens meet or exceed their weight loss goals while restoring self esteem and motivation for their futures.
