The Wolfpack Initiative is a mission to combat childhood obesity and diabetes
The Wolfpack Initiative is simple: We must reduce childhood obesity and diabetes which are on an epidemic rise in this country over the last 15 years. Today nearly 1 in 3 children in America are overweight or obese. The numbers are even higher in African American and Hispanic communities, where nearly 40% of the children are overweight or obese. If we do not 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. The Wolfpack Initiative seeks to fight this craziness through education and inspiration.
In the past three decades, childhood obesity rates in America have tripled.
For some families obesity occurs throughout several generations and many believe that obesity is genetic and feel powerless to help the next generation stop it. Most obesity is not genetic, and it can be reversed! The Wolfpack Initiative embodies this message and our goal is to get kids active and more importantly, to educate parents about the nutritional side of this epidemic. To sum it up; SUGAR MUST BE REDUCED DRASTICALLY IN OUR DIETS. It is the answer and really is that simple. The Wolfpack initiative is all about REDUCING SUGAR and spreading the message and awareness.

We are also looking for talented young wolves to earn their spot in the pack by improving their health, excelling in academics, and helping others. This is the Wolfpack initiative. If you show meaningful accomplishments in these three areas by writing an essay about it and include a parental letter of recommendation, we will consider you for an honorary Wolf Cub position and bestow upon you our highest honor: a Wolf Coin. Start your journey to earn a prestigious Wolf Coin! Wolf coins are coming soon with more details!
