In September, Yum-o!’s partner, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, celebrated their second annual Go Healthy Month! With its efforts focused on preventing childhood obesity and creating healthier lifestyles for all children, the Alliance designated the month of September as Go Healthy Month as an opportunity to engage, educate and activate kids across the nation to motivate themselves, their peers, family members, school communities and others to increase their healthy eating and physical activity.
An estimated 100,000 kids were reached during a September filled with exciting events across the country, including kid-hosted forums, the unveiling of the Alliance‘s MySpace page, Go Healthy Month celebration events, and the launch of the myGo Healthy Challenge interactive adventure.
