One in five Americans will die from an obesity related disease.
 
ISSUE 
More than 6 in 10 Broward adults are overweight, 25% are obese. One in seven Broward kids is overweight or obese. More than 20% of children and 25% of adults are active for less than one hour a week. If current trends continue 51% of our population will be obese by 2030.
 
WHY IT MATTERS 
Children born after 2010 will be the first generation in the nation's history to die younger than their parents due to this epidemic. Being overweight and obese causes more than 30 documented chronic and acute health risks and costs America more than $177 billion each year.

OUR GOAL 
To combat the cultural, physical and economic barriers in Broward that prevent families from accessing healthy, nutritional choices and active lifestyles.

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR
Projects we will support must target adults as they are key decision makers and top influencers for younger generations and demonstrate impact in one or more areas:
  • Engage all sectors in creating/implementing solutions (business, govt., nonprofit, media) that lead to a major change in social and physical environments for greater access to healthy choices.
  • Increase active lifestyles in target populations that will result in a remarkable decrease in chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and other weight related ailments.
     
  • Create behavioral change through education and awareness efforts that prevent and reduce obesity and introduce new healthy habits that result in improved health and vitality.
     
Advocate for policy changes that support goal of BFit, which is to combat the cultural, physical and economic barriers that prevent access to healthy, nutritional choices and active lifestyles in order to reduce obesity in youth and adults.
