Childhood obesity could reduce life expectancy by more than 5 years

We’re All In

The AdvoCare Foundation is committed to fighting the childhood obesity epidemic by supporting organizations across the country whose work directly impacts the safety and health of children in need. Our goal is to grant $1 million dollars by 2020 to support long-term solutions that help the next generation survive and thrive. Your dollars benefit organizations across the U.S. and help provide the resources necessary for both national and targeted change.
