Welcome our new partner: Together Counts!

We are pleased to announce our new partnership with Together Counts, an initiative of the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation (HWCF).  Together Counts™ is a nationwide program that seeks to inspire active and healthy living, especially among youth. The principle behind this effort is Energy Balance, which means balancing the calories we consume with the calories we burn.  Calories in; calories out.  It’s that simple.

HWCF is a first-of-its kind coalition that brings together more than 200 retailers, food and beverage manufacturers, restaurants, sporting goods and insurance companies, trade associations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and professional sports organizations. Their Together Counts national, multi-year effort is designed to help reduce obesity – especially childhood obesity – by 2015.

We look forward to the Together Counts and Ask Listen Learn partnership and the synergies that this collaboration will create in our joint effort to keep our nation’s youth healthy and active!
