MISSION STATEMENT:

To encourage an appreciation
of physical activity and a
healthy lifestyle through the
promotion of positive
attitudes towards exercise
and diet.

According to the Irish Heart Foundation nearly 20% of children in Ireland are obese or overweight and this number will continue to increase without immediate intervention.

Being overweight will have a massive effect on a child’s future health; leading to a higher chance of developing type 2 diabetes, heart problems, a greater risk of most cancers, worsening of asthma and a major burden on the child’s self-confidence.

A child that is overweight is twice as likely to grow into an overweight adult.
