With over 9 million American obese children, we have the opportunity to make a difference.
Tampa Bay, Florida (PRWEB) March 15, 2013
EverydayFamily.com, the fastest growing destination for young and expecting families on the web, has launched WALK WADDLE & WHEEL™, a series of events designed to help promote health & wellness, by getting the entire family moving.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, obesity is the #2 cause of preventable death in America and, “The percentage of children aged 6–11 years in the US who are obese has increased from 7% in 1980 to nearly 20% in 2008.” To help combat this rise in obesity the President has launched the “Let’s Move” initiative; a national movement focused on raising a healthier generation of kids and families. EverydayFamily’s contribution to this growing movement is the launch of WALK WADDLE & WHEEL™, a family friendly 5k race/walk and health & wellness festival.
“With over 9 million American obese children, we have the opportunity to make a difference.” said Tony Golden, father of two and the Chief Business Development Officer for EverydayFamily.com. “Obesity truly is an epidemic at this stage, but the problem is preventable. WALK WADDLE & WHEEL™ is an event for families and whole communities to experience the value of exercise and getting active at an early age while having the most possible fun."
With an “Everyone is a winner” attitude, Walk, Waddle & Wheel celebrates health, happiness, family and wellness, bringing the community together to create a five-kilometer ridiculous family fun event, in which thousands of participants enjoy a family friendly 5k, followed by a festival style party that includes live music, kids zone, adult obstacle course, Quad Bungee Jumper, food and much, much more.
