The numbers are even higher in African American and Hispanic communities, where nearly 40% of the children are overweight or obese. If we don't solve this problem, one third of all children born in 2000 or later will suffer from diabetes at some point in their lives. Many others will face chronic obesity-related health problems like heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, and asthma" (letsmove.org).________FAQ'SAre there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?Children between the ages of 4 - 12 years old can participate.
