Children are the future.  And as of right now, the future is looking foggy, at best.  With kids being less active now, than ever, the rates of Diabetes, obesity and heart disease are rising at alarming rates.  The good thing is is that the solution is simple!  Getting kids more active in their free time.  Less video games and TV and more running and playing, like they’re supposed to do in the first place.  Getting kids up and running (so to speak) teaches lifetime skills and habits that are more likely to stick with them as teens and adults.  Statistics bear out that kids who are active are much more likely to become adults who remain active.  Do the next generation a service, and turn off the tube.  Get them outside.  Get them active and keep them healthy!
