Jets Quarterback Mark Sanchez joins GENYOUth for a special event

September has come and gone, and GENYOUth has certainly been busy during National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month! We spent the month launching our movement and raising awareness for such an important cause, and we hope that you’ll continue to support us and our quest to raise awareness for and fight childhood obesity.

To close out September, GENYOUth partnered with Discovery Education to broadcast a webinar to students across the country on Tuesday, September 27th. With the help of the incredible students and staff of Central Park East Middle School, we welcomed Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, who moderated the webinar with me and gave students tips on eating right and staying healthy – and maybe even getting to the NFL one day!

My family (who are all big Jets fans – except for me!) was able to join me for the webinar as well. My son Logan reprised his role as GENYOUth’s intrepid kid reporter, and got to ask Mark Sanchez some great questions after the webinar, including whether Mark thinks there’s a Super Bowl ring in the Jets’ immediate future. (According to Mark, the answer is yes!) Between this and the Mind Body & Spirit Games in Central Park, Logan has now had a chance to interview four current & former NFL players, and a few other heavy hitters too! He’s becoming quite the pro!

While September is over, our fight against childhood obesity is nowhere near done. Please keep following GENYOUth on Facebook, Twitter, and our website to see how you can help us.
