It has been a while since my last post. I can sincerely say that it is a busy life to be a senior in high school. Excuses aside, I promise to be more commited to this blog.

September was Go Healthy Month, where we tried to reach as many youth as possible and had them pledge to go heathy.

An overview of the month:

From “Punk Rope” demonstrations to farm fresh fruit and veggie stands; from the launch of the ‘myGo Healthy Challenge’ to the Kid-Hosted Forums, the Alliance’s second Go Healthy Month activated kids across the nation to Go Healthy! 

In September kids throughout the U.S. were invited to take the pledge to Go Healthy and participate in an array of fun and healthy events including six Kid-Hosted Forums, ‘Recess by the River’ field day events and the launch of an exciting new interactive online gaming experience called ‘myGo Healthy Challenge’.

Go Healthy Champions in communities across the country worked with the Alliance to educate, engage, and empower youth to take charge of their own health. The hot, new singing sensation Menudo joined the Alliance at a Recess by the River event on September 27th in New York City, where they performed and asked kids to join them to take the Go Healthy Challenge. Former President William J. Clinton shared a special Go Healthy message on the Rachael Ray Show to encourage parents and their kids to recommit to eating healthier and being more physically active. 

The Alliance’s 20-member Youth Advisory Board led the charge to spread the word throughout social networking sites, including the Alliance’s new My Space page as well as their own networks, friends, and families.
