This past Saturday I had the pleasure of promoting my platform” Let’s Move to End Childhood Obesity” by presenting my BOOST Program at the Western New York Conference of Young People. Here I spoke to the youth about the importance of a healthy lifestyle that includes good eating habits and exercise. My class of 10 soon expanded to about 30 children in one classroom! These kids were so eager to move that I had to intensify the fitness routine. By the end of the 45 minute period the kids had worked up such a sweat they were literally trying to take off their uniforms. They loved to “jump rope” and count to 10 while executing their exercises. This group was like no other! They were full of energy just the way the youth of our nation should be!
