PLAY4HEALTH

PLAY4HEALTH™

Play4Health™ is a grassroots chronic disease prevention and wellness program designed to engage and educate kids, their parents and communities about obesity, its link to chronic disease and the importance of leading a healthy, active lifestyle. With the rise in childhood obesity, Play4Health™ is on a mission to change the way kids think – and act – about health and wellness. The Play4Health™ physical activity platform was created by celebrity health and wellness expert, Rafy Oquendo. 

CHILDHOOD OBESITY

The initial Play4Health™ program initiative was sponsored by Sanofi US in collaboration with Rafy Oquendo’s All Star Training Center, MiLB™ and Alliance for a Healthier Generation. Childhood obesity has more than tripled in the last 30 years, and kids who are obese are more at risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and other health problems. Play4Health is intended to heighten awareness of the connection between obesity and chronic disease.
