The Diabetes & Obesity program (D&O) at Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) is participating in the Super Run 5k on January 21, 2017 in Long Beach, CA. The Kids N Fitness (KNF) program is an healthy lifestyle program for children who are overweight or obese between the ages of 8-16 and their families. The KNF program helps families achieve their health goals through nutrition education and physical activity. The KNF program is offered at CHLA and at a community level by partnering up with local health clinics, after school programs, and at local churches.
We are raising money so that we can continue to expand exisiting and create new programs to help combat childhood obesity and diabetes through community outreach, clinical care, and research.
