Our willpower hasn’t changed. Our world has.

Forty years ago, you couldn’t have a pizza delivered to your sofa. And kids spent more time outside than online. We’re working to bring back healthy habits—like physical activity and nutritious eating—to prevent childhood obesity and combat chronic disease.

Lend A Hand

It’s time to benefit a little more from the spaghetti benefit.

We’ll help you raise more to help your friend in medical crisis. Our fundraising tools provide everything from news releases to fundraising forms that, together with event coaching from our program director, help events go smoothly. You’ll reach more people with our online giving site, and our matching funds of up to $5,000 inspire people to give more generously.
