The Color Collier Healthy Run event is an effort to increase physical activity and decrease the threat of obesity among kids. Did you know? Childhood obesity has more than tripled in the past 30 years. The percentage of children aged 6–11 years in the United States who were obese increased from 7% in 1980 to nearly 20% in 2008. Similarly, the percentage of adolescents aged 12–19 years who were obese increased from 5% to 18% over the same period. Thanks to Gulf Coast Runners, Early Learning Coalition of SW Florida, Collier County Health Department, Whole Foods Market, Collier County Parks & Recreation, North Naples, Fire Rescue, Pelican Larry’s Raw and Bar, Univision SW Florida, B103.9, Mason Classic Academy, Wal-Mart and Key Club International for making this event possible. 100 % of the proceeds will go to the Safe & Healthy Children’s Coalition of Collier County. The Coalition provides a conduit for coordinating individuals, agencies and businesses to address the major issues adversely impacting Collier County youth. NCH Healthcare System is proud to serve as the lead partner of this engaged and enthusiastic group.
