Camas & Washougal On a Diet – Video Shoot
Honored. Excited! But, also saddened that our country is in such a state that I have this opportunity. I’ve been asked to be the presenter for Camas and Washougal On a Diet’s viewing of the HBO’s series “The Weight of a Nation: Children in Crisis.” To promote the event, I will be featured in a video calling the community to action.
As you know, I am a product – and now a survivor – of childhood obesity. For this and other reasons, the childhood obesity epidemic is near and dear to my heart. I’m telling you first hand, “You don’t grow out of obesity. You grow into it.” Most overweight children will become overweight adults.
Mark your calendars for the upcoming FREE screenings of HBO’s “The Weight of a Nation: Children in Crisis” at LaCamas Swim & Sport — Wednesday, April 3 and Wednesday, April 10 @ 7 p.m.
Thanks to Stephanie Millman, Program Director of Camas and Washougal On a Diet for taking the time to shoot the video and the opportunity. Stay tuned, I’ll share the video with you soon.
From the documentary:
“18 + percent of our children, right now are overweight or obese.”
“I’m afraid…This is going to be the first generation of children that will have a shorter life expectancy than their parents…”
