Teenage obesity: a risk for life

Vigorous exercise

Children who are obese between 11 and 15 years old double their risk of dying before 50.* This is very worrying indeed and we must minimize that risk.
Will you help us?

Obesity has risen sharply with the mushrooming of fast food outlets on the city's streets and the drop in outdoor exercise. A combination of busy streets, pollution and the attractions of the computer screen have all contributed. What can be done to show reluctant youth how cool it feels to be fit and how much good it can do their self esteem?

The Federation has just begun an exciting new programme: one hundred outdoor winter youth activities, making the most of Hong Kong's marvellous natural environment. The first is HKFYG's Youth Challenge: Multisport Adenture Race in Sai Kung next week, an exhilarating experience for participants. We would love to involve you in our plans for eco-tours, sports climbing and orienteering events, to name just a few.

Call Bonnie in Partnership, 2123 9598, to find out more.
