Welcome to the new & improved AlexisGlick.com! We’ve been working very hard to bring this site to you, and I’m excited for everyone to finally visit!
However, that’s not why things have been so quiet here. As those of you who follow me on Twitter and Facebook know, for the better part of a year I have been working behind the scenes to build a movement which begins to reverse the trend in the Childhood Obesity epidemic.
At Super Bowl XLV in Dallas I officially announced my new role as CEO of GENYOUth, a foundation to fight childhood obesity. Our flagship program, Fuel Up to Play 60 is the only school wellness program of its kind, and is in 70,000 schools across the country. Nearly ¾ of all U.S. school districts have enrolled at least one of their schools in the program. It’s truly mind-blowing to me that we’re affecting so many of the nation’s schoolchildren on a daily basis, and I’m so proud to be involved in such a special program.
Along with Fuel Up To Play 60, GENYOUth has a number of exciting projects in the works. I can’t tell you what all of them are just yet, but I’m thrilled to share that GENYOUth, along with several of our corporate partners, will be participating in Fitness Magazine’s Mind Body & Spirit Games in Central Park on Saturday, September 17th. If you’re in the New York area, please come join us for appearances by The Biggest Loser’s Bob Harper, The Jump Rope Queen, and a “surprise” NFL player, along with some great interactive games and races for both adults and children.
2011 has been a year of big changes for me, and I’m excited to share more of them with all of you. Stay tuned!
