OASIS is a partner with the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation to fight obesity

Obesity is a challenge for all generations. As a partner with the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation, OASIS brings together volunteers age 50-plus with children to promote lifelong habits that help both generations achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Through CATCH Healthy Habits, volunteers teach the children ways to eat more healthfully and have fun playing vigorous, active games.

CATCH Healthy Habits is an opportunity for adults over 50 to be part of the solution to a problem that is putting their communities at risk. It’s evidence-based, it’s been proven to work for children, and it benefits the volunteers by encouraging healthy lifestyle choices and engaging them in meaningful community service.

“There’s so much that we can teach them, that eating healthy is easy, and it’s going to make a better life for them,” says Doris Felix, a volunteer in Lakewood CA.

About the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation

The Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation brings together 160 retailers, food beverage manufacturers, restaurants, sporting goods and insurance companies, professional sports organizations, NGOs, trade associations, and the U.S. Army doing their part to help families reduce obesity, especially childhood obesity.
