“LOCAL NON-PROFIT LAUNCH CROWD FUNDING CAMPAIGN”
Cleveland, Ohio, July 11, 2012 Local non-profit Organization launches Community Crowd Funding Campaign. 1000 donations of $25.00 each is needed to help raise awareness of Childhood Obesity.
Childhood obesity has increased more than fourfold among our youths. More than 23 million children and teenagers in the United States ages 2 to 19 are obese or overweight, a statistic that health and medical experts consider an epidemic. Childhood obesity puts nearly one third of America’s children at early risk for Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and even stroke – conditions usually associated with adulthood.
These alarming statistics were the motivation behind the creation of Healthy Kids Rock Summer Mobile Workshops, created by Kelly’s Way. Kelly’s Way is a local non-profit organization with a mission to Inspire, Educate and Empower Youth Health & Wellness.
Throughout the Summer, the Healthy Kids Rock Youth Team visits Summer Camps and Recreation Centers, with a 2 hour Health Workshop, using Music and Entertainment to encourage it’s young audience to make permanent physical fitness and healthy eating choices.
In recognition of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, Kelly’s Way is seeking donors to help raise funds for a Back to School Finale. This event will feature National Entertainment, Health & Fitness Vendors, Healthy Food demonstrations, Free School Supplies, Healthy Education workshops and more!
Program Manager Courtney Sniderman RN, BSN states, “We are hoping to find at least 1,000 people that share our passion of creating Healthy Kids to donate a minimum of $25.00 each to help cover planning expenses.”
