Better Health for Children and Adults
Obesity rates for children have tripled in the last 30 years, and doubled for adults 50+, putting the health of our communities at risk.
Through OASIS CATCH Healthy Habits, you can be part of the solution. CATCH Healthy Habits brings children and adults age 50+ together to learn good eating and physical activity habits for a lifetime.
We have lots of ways you can help combat obesity in your community:
Work with children in grades K to 5 to lead fun, active games, share healthy snacks, and learn about good food choices. Sessions meet weekly for an hour and training is provided.
Support the team on site or behind the scenes. Prepare snacks, transport game equipment or provide office support. Watch the kids in action and collect data to measure results.
Spread the word to people in your community. Take photos or videos of kids in action. Get the buzz going on Facebook and invite more people to get involved.
Take the lead by communicating with team members and partners to coordinate the sessions. Put your organizational skills to work to help expand the program and reach more kids.
OASIS works with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, YMCAs, schools and other community partners to offer CATCH Healthy Habits in 19 cities in 15 states.
To learn how you can partner with us to bring the program to your community, contact Peter Holtgrave, National Health Manager.
