Hooray! This project is fully funded

I would like to have some visual aids to demonstrate concepts to students. With the rising obesity rate in our schools it is important to educate students about the dangers of being overweight. I think that they need to see what all that fast food really does to their bodies. I want to tackle obesity with education. I also focus on changing food habits at school and at home. As a member of the wellness committee in our district these items would be helpful at our district wide Wellness Extravaganza! Thank you for your consideration of my project!
