A Focus on Children’s Wellness
Children’s lives are in our hands. Our country is facing a childhood wellness and childhood obesity crisis. Did you know that nearly 25 million children in the U.S. are obese or overweight? Did you know that more than 36,000 babies are born each year with a heart defect? Every day, about 3,900 underage kids try their first cigarette.
Since 2003 the American Heart Association has committed more than $44 million in research relating to children’s health, but more is needed. Money raised by ThePulse activities will support the American Heart Association’s commitment to helping children live stronger, healthier lives by helping to fund education, research and public policies that effect where children live, work and play.
