The future depends on each and every child.
“Education is the great engine to personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine, hat the child of a farm worker can become the president of a great nation.” Nelson Mandela
Today nearly 25 million children are overweight or obese. This epidemic is occurring with children across all socioeconomic strata and among all ethnic groups. Running with Sole has teamed up with health, academic, corporate and nonprofit organizations to join the fight against childhood obesity. The primary goal of the program is to encourage the adoption of heart healthy eating patterns, nutrition for the soul and physical activity habits that will help prevent or reduce the likelihood of obesity. Significant health benefit can be obtained by including a moderate amount of physical activity. We educate and empower children with knowledge on the importance of taking care of their bodies and provide them with self-confidence in their ability to do so. Educate children in healthy behaviors by way of physical activity and eating well. By providing children with these skills, we empower them with benefits such as self confidence, self-worth, energy, focus, respect, commitment, and self esteem.
