Programs like City Bike, strict health and food regulations & other programs have made great strides to help become part of the solution in the fight against obesity in NYC. These solutions are costly. So then we revisit the question of "What's being done to help those living in lower income housing reach healthy goals?" Obesity is still the number two killer to New Yorkers --only second to tobacco.
We are in the fight against obesity & want to promote healthy & holistic living. This is where Body Movin' Festival comes in. A fun family oriented festival full of physical activities and healthy food. Families will be able to come out and enjoy a Celebrity Volleyball Game & participate in activities such as tug of war, bobbing for apples, family yoga, knockout basketball, Zumba classes, double dutch competitions & more! We also have chefs that will prepare healthy food choices while facilitating workshops on healthy eating options. And let's not forget the MUSIC!!! Live performances from well known artist will grace the stage at this one day event. Join us to raise money to continue the fight for a healthy NYC & America!!!
