Childhood obesity prevention program in jeopardy

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A summer program helping fight childhood obesity is in danger of being canceled.  This year's "The Youngest Loser" nutrition and fitness program is low on funding. That means the program could be canceled or parents would have to pay to enroll children. Last summer, the thirty participants in "The Youngest Loser," lost a total of 101 pounds.

The deadline for organizers to secure funding is Wednesday, May 23rd. If you can help out with donations, please contact "The Youngest Loser" at 601-853-9747. You can send donations to:

The Youngest Loser, 115 West Jackson Street, Suite F, Ridgeland, MS 39157.
