Free Childhood Obesity Awareness Month Activities



September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, a CDC initiative designed to raise awareness of the growing childhood obesity epidemic in the United States. One in 3 children in the U.S. is overweight or obese, putting them at risk for health problems that were once seen only in adults.

In honor of National Childhood Obesity Month, Southlake Parks and Recreation offers complimentary programs throughout the month of September to get your family moving. Check back in August for our 2019 schedule!
