The Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri: women building better communities.
The Children’s Mercy PHIT Kids (Promoting Health in Teens and Kids) is a weight management program promoting health in children and teens, ages 2-17. PHIT Kids addresses childhood obesity prevention and treatment on multiple levels, including individual, family and community. This program brings families together to learn about nutrition and fitness and stay motivated to make long-term, family-based lifestyle changes. The Junior League volunteers help support the curriculum and activities with the families and have a meaningful role with our impact area in promoting childhood nutrition and fitness in Kansas City.
