Skip to Content Hits 3,000 Leaders


Exciting news on the network front: reached a major milestone on Tuesday when we officially registered our 3,000th Leader.

The news comes on the heels of our Supporter network growing to more than 200,000 people (at last count, about 212,000 folks had joined the movement).

When first launched in September 2010, we set out to create an online space where Leaders of the childhood obesity movement could get to know one another and collaborate on advocacy efforts. We also hoped to generate major grassroots support, so that those advocacy efforts would be successful.

This is an exciting time for the network. Much work remains to be done to reverse childhood obesity and provide a healthier future for our nation’s young people. However, the more of us who step up to the plate, the more successful we will be.

We are so honored to be a part of this important movement, and as always, are here to help Leaders like you achieve your goals. Please let our team know if we can be of assistance, and thank you for letting us be a part of the childhood obesity movement.
