Uniform Advantage Continues Partnership with Action for Healthy Kids
We are so pleased to partner with Action for Healthy Kids for another year to help them take action against childhood obesity, undernourishment, and physical inactivity.
According to our partner, Action for Healthy Kids, about 1 in 6 people in the United States face hunger issues and about 1 in 3 children are overweight or obese. Childhood obesity puts young people at risk for a number of health issues and is the number one health concern among parents in the U.S. topping both drug abuse and smoking.
These statistics are staggering!
2014 was the first year we partnered with Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK), an amazing organization that helps provide support and options for children to live healthier lifestyles and fights against childhood undernourishment and physical inactivity. Fast forward to 2017, we couldn’t be happier to support the movements and efforts that Action for Healthy Kids takes part in every day to ensure every kid is healthy, active, and ready to learn.
We’ve donated more than $5,300 to the organization by creating awareness scrub tops designed by us to help support their mission. We will donate $1 from the sale of each “Create A World” print scrub tops below to Action for Healthy Kids.
Founded in 2002 by former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. David Satcher. Action for Healthy Kids works towards their mission to mobilize school professionals, families, and communities to take actions that lead to healthy eating, physical activity and healthier schools where kids thrive. Their work provides resources to help schools implement health and wellness programs that teach kids how to lead healthy lives and stay well nourished. In 2013, AFHK programs impacted more than 29,000 schools and communities, reaching more than 12.9 million children.
