Dr. Mehmet Oz, cardiac surgeon and host of the Dr. Oz Show and his wife, Lisa, co founded, "HealthCorps" in 2003 - a charity to fight child obesity and mental resilience crises and expand the organization's groundbreaking in-school health educational and mentoring program. This year Wednesday, April 18th, Dr. Oz and his wife, Lisa will honor individuals for their work to help combat child obesity and diabetes while celebrating the success of Coordinators and their students.
I am proud to say that I will be part of Dr. Oz's goodie bag giveaway this year. I am so happy and honored to give a sampling of my healthy chocolate, (www.healthyflipside.com), to the many people donating money and their time at this event. My hope is to educate more adults and children about how my products can actually help improve people's health, help with weight loss and fight off cravings.
This is a topic near and dear to my heart as well as my husband's. The number of children with diabetes and who are overweight continues to increase at an incredibly scary rate. My husband, owner of Born Ready Fitness, trains many kids; some are athletes and some have a difficult time with their weight. He loves seeing the change in children's confidence as he helps guide them on how to make healthier choices with food and add fun exercises into their daily life.
If you would like to help towards making a difference and donate, please go to www.HealthCorps.org for more information. Your contribution will help to raise funds to continue our mission. Since its inception, HealthCorps has grown from a single pilot school to 54 high schools in thirteen states! The goal by 2015 is to create change in high schools in all 50 states, which is now possible since programs were just added in Baltimore, New Orleans, and Oakland. With everybody's help and pushing this altogether, we can get children back on the right path which will change the rest of their lives.
Thank you for your support.
