You can help empower us.

What if we hit the tipping point in life expectancy? What if 10 years old are going to live 5 years less than there parents? This is not the future. This is America in 2012.

Over the last century we built a world where children no longer lead active lifestyles. They are backseat passengers along the concrete roadways of our towns and cities. A perfect storm of rocketing obesity rates, blighted and dangerous urban spaces and a digital world that has disconnected a generation of kids has unfolded. Help us launch this initiative and build 100s of active spaces across the country.
